You do require a firewall and chiefly if you aren't at the back a router the Windows Firewall is one alternative. Every computer should be at the back a firewall of some sort. In all-purpose, hardware firewalls, usually provided by NAT routers, keep hateful network traffic from ever reaching your computer, while software firewalls, such as the Windows Firewall, discard malicious traffic after it has in fact arrived at your computer.
