That's a little puzzling, because routers (in the context we are
discussing here) are not interchangeable with switches or hubs.=20
Different purpose all together.

Well my kestion isn't really how to do it but if it's doable or not, I
mean do firewalls in general have a way to unblock ports or are they
like totally blocked...the thing is I am getting a new pc soon and if
that is the case I prefer getting a hub or a switch instead of a
firewall, I don't want all the ports to be blocked...i kidna want to
have control over what is and what is not blocked. thanks

Well it's still the question on which router he has because I have a
Linksys, but I'm not sure if the intreface is the same with other
brands.
