If you use a router, you really negate the need for a firewall in terms of your connection, although some firewalls also have features that prevent popups and the like, so you might want to keep it.

Personally I'm a linux (RedHat) user, but the beauty of ADSL with a router is that it works well on ANY operating system. AVG remains the virus checker of choice for those who don't want to pay anything - It's pretty good!
