"The router features include a hardware firewall and virus scan, and can force all of the nodes to run zonealarm, and pc-cillin. Everything
including wireless modes are easily changed through the router's password protected configuration panel, based at its home address, usually
192.168.1.1. By default the router runs a DHCP server, which allows the PC's networked to it to automatically configure their IP addresses, which was
the reason for restarting each system after changing the settings in "home networking wizard." (Alternately you can use winipcfg, but restarting is by
far, easier.) You can change this setting and use static IP's if you wish, If you want to run an FTP or HTTP server you will need to turn this on. There
are also many other options that the basic user will probably never use, but they are good to have."
