    I am setting up my computers to share internet, printers and files using a router. Which fire wall do you recommend as the best and easiest to setup with the TRENDnet router? Thank you for any suggestions or advice you can give me.

    Right now I'm using KIS so I don't need another Firewall, but before that I used Kerio 2.1.5 with my Netgear router.

    I had this setup for over a year without any problems. Kerio 2.1.5 is very light and easy to configure.:)

    I tried the windows XP fireall and Lookn'stop and Kaspersky without sucess. I am now using the McAffee personal plus firewall with no problems. I set it up using the instructions from Net Magic. By the way this program Net Magic from Pure Networks is amazing. I spent two days trying to set up another router. I returned it and got the TrendNet router which came with a trial version of Net Magic, I was up and going in minutes using this program. I did have a problem sharing files until I turned off the firewalls; then it worked perfectly. Of course now there are no problems and everything is working perfectly including my web site with Net Magic that I can use to share photos,file etc. with others over the internet. Simply a great program!!!!

    Behind a NAT/SPI router packet filtering becomes less relevant
    You basically need outbond application control ;)
