Hello Experts!

I have Verizon Fios at home with an Actiontec router connected to my LAN. I just had Verizon change the connection from the ONT to Ethernet (from Coax).

I would like to connect my Cisco 871w 12.4 -24.T7 advipservices directly to the internet, replacing the Actiontec router.

need some advice on best practice. what should I secure on the router? how should I do this (need examples)? I already have the documentation from Cisco for this model and IOS version but is a bit complicated.

Also, how can I test or audit my network to make sure no intruder bypasses the router?

I know a secure network is not perfect...I am just asking how would you configure a Cisco router at home, directly connected to the internet

thanks in advance!!
