Securing our Home Network

After one of our computers was hacked into after it was just hooked up to the high speed modem, our computer repair guy suggested that we buy a Linksys router to better protect our computers at home.  I had thought that the ISP had provided everything that we needed to keep our network secure, but I guess I was wrong.

As it turns out, they don’t really give you anything you need to ensure that your computers are safe, and at least now I know what I need.  I feel much better knowing that we shouldn’t have any issues now with a hacker thanks to the firewall in our router.
