Both regional cable providers in our area provide only cheap cable modems, and at least the ILEC CO's DSL is also basic modem-like capability, although the ILEC offers a wireless option with a DSL AP (that I haven't examined to see if it's a router or bridge).Just asking .. any idea how many cable / dsl operators around the world - not just in the USA - provide hardware firewalls along with their CPE equipment - or perhaps provide CPE equipment that's capable of firewalling?
At least one of the cable providers provides free virus/firewall software (F-Secure).
Don't know of any hardware security offerings bundled or offered.
