Dave: Doesn't the Linksys already block those ports by default?

| If you are connected to the Internet via broadband, get a Cable/DSL Router
such as the

a simplistic

specifically blocking both
| TCOP and UDP ports 135 ~ 139 and 445 on the Router you will effectively
block all MS

Internet worms.
