    Router: Software firewall not Hardware firewall.

    I don't understand why a router is called a hardware firewall. Is it hardware that just has software firewall?

    No. It is not because it has some software firewall. It is called a hardware firewall because of its function in NAT routing. Here is a link to explain further:
