firewall question

I have a Bt 200 voyager modem that has a firewall built in but I don't use because it blocks my xbox. I also have zonelabs but I am confused which one to use. Is one a hardware firewall and the other software?

Which on should I use or should I use both. How do I get it to work with the xbox and will it have an effect on speed?

Thanks in Advance Cheesy

Can't help with the xbox as I don't have one (presumably, it's a case of finding out which port your xbox requires, then configuring your routers firewall to permit traffic from and to that port (thats how my router works anyway)), but yes, one is a hardware firewall and the other, a software firewall, and without question, both should be used.

Thanks for the quick response. Well i'll activate the voyager firewall if someone could tell me how to open the port for xbox live. Will this have an effect on upload speed e.t.c :?
