I have 2wire 2700GHV-2 which direct connect to the internet. i also have a DLink Dl-524 router which connect to the 2wire router. my
computer was than connected to the Dlink by LAN cable.Both my router have build-in firewall. which mean that my computer was behind DLink firewall, my Dlink was behind 2wire firewall. My computer is install with active virus shield by AOL.Am i well protected from hacker and network virus? Do i need a software firewall to protect my computer?

If I were you I would install a software firewall, but make sure you disable the Windows firewall first. Never run two software firewalls or two antivirus programs at the same time.

what software firewall would be the best for me. i wan a software that is user-friendly, mean that i just need to install and forget about it, does not prompt for access. every rules will be set in auto. I oso wan a firewall that pass www.GRC.com shield up test.
it can be freeware or paid software.


i dont wan zonealarm, sygate, kerio.
