my son built it for me. It's been up and running almost a week now. I He bought 
the components for it from NewEgg - He had it all ready to go in no time, and I 
hadn't bought the operating system for it yet! so I had to run out quick to 
Costco to buy it.
A DSL router - with full fledge firewall - I'm not the one to ask - but I think 
this is what you mean?
we're on cable - and we've had a linksey's wirelessG broadband router for a 
good while now. We bought an additional card for my old computer, so it can go 
online now too for my daughter. I bought a NetGear Card for it - the price was 
right a couple weeks ago at Circuit City with rebates, and my son heard they 
were better cards than the linksey's ones - which are more $$$. He said to 
stear clear of Belkin - they seem to be advertised a lot now. 
anyway - my son said his computer is protected by the firewall in the linkseys' 
router. and he hasn't had any problems.
