I am a firm believer that no system should be connected to a Cable or DSL
line without a NAT router. The NAT router can protect you from port scans
and attacks. You are on the right track. I hear that D-Link make a good and
inexpensive router. I use Linksys myself.

Hope this helps,

My friend who is even less security savvy than 
myself has a new computer.
 He has purchased an internet service from the
local cable co. (zoom)
 Before he attaches his Win XP computer to the
internet should he not install a router for added
 We have in mind the  D-Link 10 / 100 Ethernet
Adapter with Wake  and the D-LINK - DI-604 - 4-Port 
Cable/DSL Router 
 Does this sound like a good setup for making the 
system more secure from outside meddling??
 All comments and advice whether positive or
negative greatly appreciated.
    Happy New Year to one and all.   Mel.
