    Hi!

    I recommend ESET's firewall, beacause you can choose between three profiles.

    It is not the best firewall but certainly better than the Windows firewall

    The ESS firewall is better because it has outbound control; XP SP2 firewall only blocks incoming traffic. If you're not concerned with having outbound control, the XP SP2 firewall will be good enough.

    Just buy a router ( they're cheap) and be done with it.

    The ESS firewall would be nice, if it actually told you when a program had been modified, and ask if you still want to allow that program access.
