You should be going to the router first from the cable modem or DSL modem,
then you go to your computers. This allows the hardware firewall to work
that is built into most routers. Note: You will have to reboot the computer
after changing this unless you know how to release and renew the IPs. Dave

Well gosh,
 
Maybe my 2 home computers are set up wrong.   I have the host computer, a
Windows xp unit, receiving the cable (Internet)  and then the router is off
the cable and my other computer, a Windows 2000 unit, is off the router.
Of course I could connect 3 more computers to the router, if need be.
 
I did not know that a router could be 1st in the chain.

hi Carl
 
The way that I have set up the router is: 
 
Internet to Modem to Router to Computers the firewall is in the Router
therefor shielding both computers,  although  both computers have their own
individual firewalls anyway for added protection.

Don't be mislead;   that firewall is for the slaves; not the host computer.
