What you really need to do is look at what you have (and what it can do for you) and what you need. You have a cable modem that does NAT, with all/some incoming traffic going to your AS400. Now if you get a fire wall how is that going to change? Do you want VPN? How many locations/computers? Are you going to control incoming traffic by IP addresses? Do you need better logging then you have now? I would look at Linux (maybe NetBSD) because you could add on other stuff to the same box like snort or Net Saint. Red Hat has a program that will run and update your Linux Red hat system. I got the first system free but it is $60.00 a year for basic. Note: It will not update the other packages you add. There are also fire walls that run on windows systems.
