The part where "you don't need a firewall" pretty much iced him in my
book, I don't think even "geek squad" is that bad.

You've been bonking again Peter Foldes's sister with your small penis.
How much did you pay for the shortest time you must have had! Have you
tried Peter Foldes himself since his dick removal operation?

But a NAT Router or a NAT Router with a full FireWall implementation is better than using
a FireWall application in many respects.

I recently upgraded from a plain NAT Router to a NAT Router with a full FireWall
implementation and I ham very happy with it ability to "rules".

I think for a NAT router to be effective protection from inbound
threats the pc needs to be assigned to a non-obvious local address. I
would still see port scans when I had my pc at 192.168.1.64.

A software firewall will give you the opportunity to detect
unauthorized outbound traffic which a hardware firewall will allow to
pass. The Microsoft Firewall does not provide this function.
