Taking advantage of your WiFi router's capability to secure the wireless infrastructure (using security protocols such as WPA) and protecting your network from an Internet attack using the router's firewall capabilities are only part of the battle of keeping your network and the computers on the network protected. A huge problem for nearly all computer users is the possibility of having your computer become infected with a software virus. Other threats include Trojan horse programs, worms, and spyware.
