I have a DSL Home Network wired like this:
Phone cord to the Qwest 2701HG-D Modem/Router
Ethernet cable to two computers (one with malware reported on another thread - probably not firewall caused)
Ethernet cable to a print server
Wireless is active due to TaterTot's laptop.
The Modem/Router has it's own firewall which I've configured, PW protected, and made not pingable. So my question is:
Can I/Should I turn off Windows XP Firewall even though there does not seem to be a problem with both firewalls working?
What changes (additional hardware, software or settings) could I/should I make to obtain a desired level of protection?
Your answers/advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
