Mart: I bought a DLink modem rather than router. (a) it's cheaper and (b) I place more trust in the ex-smoothwall-now-IPCop box under the desk as a firewall/router than in whatever gets squidged into a router's FlashROM. Plus a proxy is still useful with Oregano/O2.
As Stefan says, the firewall in RISC OS is not as secure as it might be.
