    Because even hardware firewllas need software to determine the difference between an allowed and denied access request, which is basically what linux will do for free, given the know-how to set it up.

    I use a D-Link DI-604 as my hardware router, which I've never had any problems with, but I can't recommend it because I've seen a large number of problems reported.

    Do you have any old computers laying around? If you'v egot some time on your hands, i'd suggest installing Linux on an old compy and sticking a bunch of NICs in it. It's what I'm using for my firewall right now, though I do have 3 others supplied by Verizon FiOS.

    What's your ISP, and did they supply you with a usb modem or what? You'd probably get a cheaper deal buying any 4-port router/modem that your provider supplies, and most work in pretty much the same way.

    I'm sick of all the issues with software firewalls (I tried reinstalling Kerio latest edition) so I just want to use the hardware firewall. What would you recommend plz?

    If we're talking overseas connections, I believe Convo himself found some significant performance problems connecting to Brodys and Crackaz. If I were to play on a local CS:S server there'd probably be no real difference. The short story is I can't be arsed installing, configuring and adding more shit to the startup group on my computer.

    After a bit of search, found software firewalls and system monitors that work under dial-up without any noticable change in ping/lag. Surely your broadband connection is better then 56k?

    Australian broadband is too rubbish to be putting more blocks and overhead in the way, guys

    Several days later....

    A software firewall prevents crap from getting in as well as getting out, while a hardware firewall only prevents stuff from getting in.

    A software firewall can stop the theft of information by programs that do such things. Much bundled software does this.

    I run both a hardware and a software.

    The hardware significantly reduces what the PC sees, but not all.

    I've found software firewalls generally annoying, so all I have is a hardware router.

    The only thing that I can think of that you did was to use the preset mode when you installed kerio.

    If you selected learning mode during set up you should get a popup whenever a program you haven't given permission to tries to get access to the internet.



    I may not be able to reply further for several weeks.

    It's the same crap with a fancier interface, Convo. I'm guessing you can use the "edit" to add UT.exe and associated other programs in there with ingoing and outgoing access.

    I can't seem to chose individual programs for some reason it doesn't ask (maybe its the newer version) - it used to ask I think but that was older version. Here is my picture for comparison:
