Well, my opinion, take it or leave it, is that there's no excuse for
having the builtin firewall turned on. That's one of the first things
I check for when I'm troubleshooting a system with network problems.
If your computer is otherwise unprotected on a broadband connection
then I think you're better off with a hardware solution - go spend a
few bucks and get thee behind a router, then configure the firewall
that's built into it.
