pings are not 'stronger' or 'weaker' only the number and the size of the
packets in each ping...

just do this.. drop the 50.00 to get a linksy or smc or dlink or ? small

let it handle the dropping of packets and let you cruise the internet in
ease... there IS a slight overhead in your software based firewall on your
pc handling packets coming IN and the ones heading out...

take the load off.. and get a hardware router/firewall
