Do I need to setup the proxy server?

I am running WinXPpro connected to the internet via a cable modem and roadrunner.

My computer is networked with another XP machine and one win98se machine via a Dlink cable router/switch.

My question is, the router has a built in firewall, and I was wondering if I need to setup the proxy option in my programs (ie. IMchat, webcam, gamespy, etc)?

My chat programs work fine and I havn't really tried internet games yet, just wondered if the firewall made the proxy setup necessary.

Thanks!

Hardware Routers use Network Address Translation (NAT) and do not require any proxy settings

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
