    Having broadband running 24/7 I feel the need to use a good hardware firewall.

    My modem is a SpeedTouch 330 USB ADSL modem, so whichever unit I buy I'd prefer it to be compatible with this modem, though not essential.

    I use http://dcplusplus.sourceforge.net/ for file sharing over the net which I would not want to hinder or have conflict, apart from that, security and no loss of performance is my criteria.

    I understand that a firewall which offers SPi is a pre-requisite. I was thinking of choosing from these 3 here .....
