I'm using a NetGear RP614 cable router which has (is?) a NAT firewall. I'm not sure if there is anything I need to do to activate or set up the firewall. I couldn't find anything in the documentation about this.

Thanks
Frog

Network Address Translation (NAT) does not need to be set up as it is native to a router. Essentially what happens is the IP Address assigned by your ISP is converted in the router to the one that is used by your computer, thus hiding your computer's IP Address from the internet.
