Which gives better security?

- Firewall (pick any make/model/version)
- Router (pick any make/model/version)

Just curious as to what other people think... I realise either could be better depending on how they're configured, but in general, what do people think?

also... ports not mapped thru router are as good as blocked by the router??

They are two completely different things. A firewall is a security device. A router is a network device for directing traffic. Most of the routers you will buy have a basic firewall but nothing fancy.

also... ports not mapped thru router are as good as blocked by the router??
Well... if they are not allowed to pass traffic thru them then that would mean they are blocked wouldn't it?
