If I use an expensive hardware firewall (those that designed for corporation/business's network use) in my home network. Will that be able to provide me better protection against malware and hacker attack? (compared to if I use an ordinary home modem router).

Best Answer:

Ritz: It could. You just need to know what you're doing and set it up correctly… otherwise it would be useless.

Other answer:

Ritz:
The cost of the router doesn't matter. It's the security features that matter. There are some routers that allow you to set up a very strict firewall at a very low price while some expensive ones hardly have options at all.
Techwing:
The fancy firewalls have more options and are faster, but a home router is fine if it's configured properly.
Happy Gramps:
the router or modem has nothing to do with a firewall !! you can use a windows firewall which is free and offers excellent protection
chrisjbsc:
Yes. Much better. As long as it is properly configured!
