    ok I have a linksys BEFSR41 ver.2 with the newest firmware...how do I configure this through the router settings to make sure that I have the built in NAT working properly. I don't like to have the software hardware combo unless I have to...if anyone has this or knows how to make sure the pcs behind are safe let me know please

    in the security section of your router setup make sure that the firewall is turned on, and tic the square to block anonymous internet requests.

    NAT will always work unless you place a PC in the DMZ, if you have no idea what that means or hwo to do it, you're safe.
