Is it a good idea to buy a router as a security measure for your home PC instead of using a firewall?  Would I need a firewall also, or will the firewall alone be enough?  I have heard that buying and installing a router is great security... especially if you use a high speed cable or dsl connection.  Is this true?  What are your thoughts?
