    For sure

    For sure it's good! The more security, the harder it's to broke it! I have a NAT Firewall + a Norton Firewall.. Their another tread going on exaclty about multi firewall for a computer.

    It depends on your needs...you don't want to spend zillion dolars if you just want to do a simple filtering don't you?
    if OpenBSD+IPF or Linux+IPTABLES can do it, why not?

    those OpenSource OS can turn your $2000 hardware into a simple $43 box?

    What you can also do if you have a Linksys router, is to disable high risk ports (for eg. trojans etc.)
