Just a point for comparison: the words "same benefit" are used below, as i
understand, the linksys routers don't supply outbound packet filtering via
port/application, which is a huge security differentiator between them and
host based firewalls. Perhaps I've overlooked this feature.
Also, other items that we're needing to consider are those times when a
laptop user (vpn tunnel mode) is on dial-up, or the quite popular now hotel
LAN. Thought they are great for home offices with multiple pcs, the linksys
doesn't address the scenarios above.
I agree with most of what you guys have said and really appreciate your
input. I think both hardware and software solutions have their place.
