    Ugh, you're might get a proprietary wireless router from the cable company. The setup I've seen from RoadRunner was a Netgear router made specifically from them. Unlike other wireless routers, I've never been able to get it to work on another ISP. I don't have the model in front of me and am unable to tell you little more than that.

    As for the Smoothwall, you will only draw limited benefit from it. The primary security risk you're looking at is campers on your cloud. A Smoothie won't help you there. Be sure to set up WPA if you want to lower your risk profile and keep those campers at bay. There's a few different ways you can do security on a wireless network, you might check out some other posts and/or tutorials.
