I was told that there's no need for me to have a firewall program since I am connected via a wireless B router. Is this true?

If this is not true...
I just recovered from a SPYWARE STRIKE infection thanks to the generous help of CYBERTECH in this forum. Would a firewall have helped protect my system?

Thanks

The router's firewall may prevent hacking but a software firewall can stop some problems caused by viruses after you're already infected. I doubt if any firewall would block spywarestrike.
