    SUBJECT: Changing over from Dialup to Broadband. Part 1.

    In mid December I intend to change over from Dialup to Broadband.

    1. What do I need to know in order to achieve this goal?

    2. I know that I need a physical firewall.
    Is there a particular brand and model that you recommend?

    3. Is there any security software I need to purchase?

    4. Concerning music and movie downloads, do I need
    any special software?

    Thank you.

    Awaiting your response.

    Rumba352.

    A good firewall/antivirus combo that uses little resources is Zone Alarm with Anti Virus!! Norton Internet security does a good job, but it is a real resource HOG and might slow your computer down !!!

    Scuse me I didn't notice you SAID Physical Firewall, they are usually included in the Router!! A good one that is less expensive is the D Link 610 for a wired system!! I am not into Wireless myself !!!
