Hi Members,

Thanks for taking the time to read my question and answering it with the best you can.
Going through my Grandads old boxes he had an ZYXEL USG40 lying around which he was planning to set up for his business but he got old and lost his wife and decided to retire. Anyways he gave it to me and said I don't really need it anymore.

I don't know much about Zyxel products but I was curious if I set it up at home on a single PC could I protect myself from attacks and viruses?

I wasn't to sure if this product was only for networking protecting?
Would the Anti Virus, ADP protection work whilst browsing the internet?

I know this product has a licence fee but if they added an additional line of defence I am willing to add this to my Software Internet Security Suit.

The Firewall built into USG would that protect against internet threats also?

Thanks for taking the time to read and answer my Questions, I really do appreciate it.

Regards,
Mobi
