    Cable/DSL routers usually have firewalls built in; they are vastly
    superior to software firewalls. Even if you have only one node, it's
    worth the money to get a router--doubly especially if you have PPPoE,
    because the router can handle that for you and take that load off the
    computer.

    Here's a hint... I just bought a Netgear FR314 on eBay for $40. This
    is a four-port NAT router with firewall. And by firewall, I mean it
    has stateful packet inspection, DOS protection, and other features.
    Hell of a deal for $40.
