In this video we will answer whether a router will give more security from outside attacks, viruses and trojans. The quick answer is yes, but lets delve into network security a bit further and talk about how much a router will actually protect you and how it actually works. Don’t worry, this isn’t going to be a complex lesson in network security. A router has the ability to set up a hardware firewall to protect from outside attacks that may include viruses and trojans. A router does not, however, give network security from everything – most of your security will not come from the router, but from safe surfing and knowing what it is you are downloading.
