I'm learning that a hardware firewall is a very good thing to have, and I've been informed that they are very cheap.  But when I go to newegg.com, they don't look so cheap.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

I buy them all the time off eBay (from seller I trust).

Normally in the US$25-35 range.
Let me look up the last ones I bought - only as an example - I am not warranting the seller (but he's never failed me yet).

This guy has been around forever and has been good to me:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Linksys-WRT54G-WRT54G2-Wireless-G-Router-WiFi-802-11g-/370167537357?pt=COMP_EN_Routers&hash=item562fb45ecd

I always buy the wireless - same basic price - even if the customer doesn't need it right now.

NOTE: I am basing this response on your prior question - which seemed to indicate 'Home Use'.

I have a Linksys Router, I wonder if I already have a firewall?

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

Yes - you do.
Have you ever logged into it and looked around at the tab options?

That is great to hear.
Glad it worked out.

BTW - I just did a quick check on prices for that model and most were in the $100-200 range...which I think is more than the price of a year on EE.

Good Stuff!
