1) Thanks for reminding me. I forgot that my ISP router probably already has a firewall on it. I will check when I get home.
2) And yes, it does have an internal address such as 192.168.x.x
3) I'm mostly concerned about content and websites. I already have software that is supposed to be able to scan files (Norton). I also have Spybot.
Despit the protection I was running, my computer got a virus on it last week. After getting it cleaned up, someone mentioned hardware firewalls.
I currently run Windows Firewall but from what I'm learning, it's not the greatest solution.
So, if my router already has a firewall on it, then what I really need to do is look a little more closely at the software solution . . . perhaps change my software or augment what I already have.
