Layered malware protection: role of Router Firewall?

Recommended Posts

In the blog on layered protection, it says that the first layer of defence is a firewall, and it goes on to discuss the Windows Firewall.  Many users nowadays access the internet via a router, and most routers have some kind of built in firewall, so would not this be the first layer of defence?  I realise that Emsisoft is not in the business of routers, but for the sake of completeness of topic, should this also be mentioned, with some explanation of what a router's firewall does?

I would believe the article was more about software on the computer than the network hardware, especially since many people feel the need to add software firewalls to the mix for the application monitoring capabilities.
