Bill G asked:
My son wants me to upgrade to high-speed internet so he can download music faster to his ipod. I am concerned about what I need in terms of firewalls and spyware blockers and anti-virus and computer hackers. I am running Webroot’s Spysweeper with anti-virus and SystemSuite’s Netdefense firewall on my dialup connection right now. Should I consider better programs than these?
He also wants to have a wireless LAN in the house. How do I prevent someone from tapping in to that?
We are considering BellSouth’s DSL because I can combine my cell, home phone and dialup accounts for about the same money and still get this high-speed connection. I just need to purchase the necessary hardware and software protection. By the way, BellSouth offers a firewall at $10/month. Would that be better advised than buying some third-party firewall such as Norton?
Why is all this stuff so complicated?
