It has been suggested to me (see Masked Hacker IP post below) that a router would be an effective device to add to my anti-virus arsenal, especially inasmuch as all of my protection was recently rendered ineffective in a vicious attack.
How would a router work on a stand alone PC? What kind of router (wireless?) would I get? Would it work in tandem with my firewall or would I need to uninstall Zone Alarm first? Anything else I should know about this?
