Dia-up internet - firewall solution

Last Modified: 2013-12-14
I have to use dial-up at home and I noticed hackers get get much easier to my computer since I don't have a router with a physical firewall and NAT. What can I do in this case to be better protected. I have Zone Alarm on, Windows Firewall on, XP is patched. Is there any piece of hardware I could use? anything else I can do to track incoming requests?

thank you
