Absolutely correct. I've just changed the firewall lashup though, see my
reply to Anne. This thing is at least as good as bottled beer at first
impression. You can now run router software very similar to what the
linksys WR54G series routers use, but since it isn't so resource limited
as it is in my old BEFSR41, its has another trainload of bells and
whistles one can setup. Like automatic upnp if I fire up azureus,
customized firewall rules based on iptables, all the ipv6 stuff when that
comes in, yadda yadda.
So, until I find out different, I still have a bulletproof firewall
between me & the net. And the room is at least 200 watts cooler.
