2Wire Router - Web Remote Access Secure Enough?

We have a small office with a domain network of 10 workstations and 1 server running Microsoft SBS 2003.  When we moved over to Qwest, they provided us with a 2Wire modem/router which has software to allow for web remote access.  I am a noice at network security.  I know that 2Wire is normally used in residential installations.  I was wondering if the 2Wire Web remote access software was secure enough to use for a small business.  It is my understanding that the web portal software provides access to all computers on the network which have file sharing enabled.  I read through some of the setup literature on the internet, but I am not sure if it has the proper security features to keep the our network safe from hackers and if our network security is setup properly either.  Experts, please advise if you would feel security features are adequate on the web remote access on the 2Wire modem/router.  Some links I have gone to:

Thanks for your help.

This is a decent router, but you are correct it is for residential use. Although it can block all ports into the server but it will not monitor what goes out. This is usually not a real big deal in a small enviroment. I recomend if you keep this router to ONLY forward the ports that you will need and nothing more. It will provide you with decent security, but like I said it will not monitor what is going out of your facility.
