I think a software firewall is just as good as an external firewall. The main job of a firewall is to control the packets that get sent to your pc (well i think it is anyway) and a software firewall can do that job as well as an external firewall.

i stopped that slap fight cause im sick (2 weeks before end of holiday crap) i myself often help a m8 who has a company wich instals networks and makes servers and computers
we often make our own routers (a computer wich acts as a router for like 10 computers and it has a software firewal)
but NTD your right a software firewal is as good as a router firewal
but NOT if it is installed on the computer you r using the point is you gotta have it externaly to it to work on 100% if it is in a ruter or a computer wich is build to work as a router isnt that much of a difrence
