I have been getting a few trojans lately. Is there a way to configure my linksys router to help with the problem.


Secondly is there a recommended firewall software for vista since vista does not do a good job on outgoing.
(new 2nd computer no virus or malware yet)

TIA

It should be set up fine with the default settings. Maybe there are other issues such as surfing habits (more than one user?) or protection programs used (or not used). A software firewall should be used in conjunction with the router.
