    guys just need this confirmed as I have been going over it a zillion times.

    I have a modem with a wireless AP on it which my laptop works off. Now I'm wanting to buy an appliance firewall which my wired/wireless pc's will be routed through. I take it that with this setup my laptop will bypass the firewall as the wireless AP is on the modem and therefore be left exposed. Am I right?


    Cheers

    Michael

    Yep, You're right!

    Unless you locate the Firewall 'beyond' the Access Point, in which case you will need some other method of connecting to the ISP.
