    I have just bought a 'Linksys wireless' model WRT54GS (Cable) which has firewall but i have a firewall in 'McAfee internet security suite'. Can i have both firewalls or will they conflict? If they confict which 1 should i use for my firewall?

    Software and Hardware firewall will happy co-exist as they effectively serve different purposes.
