    Make only the bare minimum of ports available on the public side.

    Those services which are available via the ports...secure them as best you can, lock down, keep software updated.

    I use Zonealarm Pro on my 32bit system and it is really good but, not the best for 64bit.

    Do you use a router? NAT is a basic firewall in itself.

    I use the HotBrick LB-2 to block hackers from accessing my network. It's a hardware Firewall with Dual WAN capabilities. If your looking for a home network hardware firewall you should check out the HotBrick 401VPNX2. I've always been a fan of HotBrick, they have great customer service.
