Securing Our Computers Along With Our Routers

Hello I Know it’s important to secure our computers which I can’t wait till we cover that but it’s also important to cover securing our modems/routers which I would like to know how to do. I have a cable modem Arris SBG7600A2. Thanks ~Patriot

Basic rule of thumb to start is deny everything coming in and allow everything out. Then monitor your firewall to see what traffic is being generated both internal and external. Based on that you can fine tune your firewall to be more effective! Also, it is very, very important to remember that you MUST use defense in depth - Firewall router and firewall on PC as a start. Hope this helps??

If ultimate security is on your mind, you can check the routers that Rob Braxman builds and sells.
