Hi, I have 2 pc's which i wish to wirelessly network, i have a Linksys WAG54G wireless router which i think has a firewall built in. The problem I have is security, when i set up my network, i have to disable the Windows Firewall and Norton Firewall for the computers to share files and printers, Should i do this? would the firewall inside the router be enough to protect from external attacks and viruses?

Thank you

I did use Kerio years ago on Win98 but nowadays I only ever use the modem/router's firewall.
