I have been looking lately around the Internet for network devices that are designed to stop intruders, hackers, or anyone who is not supposed to be on your network.  Please don't ask me why I want this, I just do.  I am looking for devices that are placed in the cable line BEFORE the router, so "whatever is not supposed to be on the network" doesn't reach the router, and after that, reach the devices connected to it.
Surprisingly, I have found very little.  The only thing I have found that has met my criteria is something called the Fingbox. It is hooked up as I say and constantly monitors your wireless and wired networks for intruders.  If something is found, all you have to do is click block and it's history.  I have written to the company several times. I have read several very positive reviews on the device.  It is not badly priced at $129.  I am seriously thinking of getting it.  However, I have seen some other devices, such as very expensive routers that are designed to do basically what the Fingbox does, won't allow the "intruder" to get into the devices. So this is what I have been searching for.  Please don't criticize or give me any negative feedback about what I want to do.   It is my choice and I am hoping some of you may already be using such devices and can recommend something or a networking company for me to look at.  Price is not an object, as long as I feel it is worth it.  Thank you.
