    I am running a DSL ZyXEL Prestige Modem Series 660 that has a firewall in it, plus a Linksys WRT54G that has a firewall in it, and ZoneAlarm. Can 2 harware firewalls conflict with each other? When I check for leakage on the ports, they all come up closed, but they are not stealthed.

    Hello,
    Not likely.
    BTW, closed ports is good. Stealth is the matter of convenience.

    You could have problems if both router do NAT/NAPT.

    I bridged the modems firewall, and now I have stealth. So I guess they were working against each other..... Thanks
