    is it secure enough to have my computers on the internet hooked up through a router and using only that router as a firewall. no software firewall would be installed on the computers, do i have to mess with alot of the settings in router firewall to make it secure?

    A decent hardware router will stop 99.9% of people, but if anyone really wants in, there's ways to bypass both the hardware and software firewalls.

    i linksys router made this in 05 or 06 with the latest firmware is good enough. No need for software firewalls..maybe for like a server or something but even then you barely need it lol
