Will Dual WAN conflict with hardware firewall?

Discussion in 'Technical Analysis' started by yoohoo, Jul 11, 2008.

  1. I want to get a Dual Wan and it looks like they come with a firewall. I already have a Linksys Broadband Firewall Router that I am happy with.

    Can I plug the Linksys into the Dual Wan or should I just use the Dual Wan? Is two firewalls better... or not needed... or conflicting?

    Any help appreciated.
  2. One firewall is sufficient. You don't need to have a particular brand, as a firewall simply closes ports to traffic.
