You are correct.  I have a fairly new Linksys and it doesn't have a firewall.  I would suggest using the firewall in OSX.  Quick, cheap, and already built-in!

I have an old Linksys. The problem with it is that I can't block incoming IP addresses. It does have the worthless feature of allowing me to block some of my internal machines from accessing the Internet. But not the reverse.

I have downloaded the manuals for the newer Linksys devices and, as far as I can tell, they have the same limitation. I'd rather not have another whole computer on line all the time to do this.

Sigh. Maybe it is time to get a commercial quality router between myself and the Internet.
