I just got cable access last week(SOOOo much better than dial up), and everything is going along swimmingly. Just a couple questions...

I'm using a Netgear FVS114 ProSafe VPN Firewall. I ran a port scan that D.C. posted a couple weeks ago (http://scan.sygate.com:443/cgi-bin/probe/stealthscan.cgi )and I'm coming back "blocked" on everything. I'm using the standard Windows XP Firewall now, but was thinking I might download Zonealarm. According to the test site though, all is working well right now.

Any other concerns I should have???

Thanks all..

I personally don't like software firewalls. I would recomend just keeping the Netgear in place and running with it. I don't even use the XP "firewall" anymore...

You're good with just those two... just keep the updates going (firmware for the router also) and be smart.
