Firewall for home security

I'm looking for a good yet simple firewall hardware device to use on a home network. Current configuration is as follows:
  • Optimum on-line cable modem
  • Netgear switch
  • From the switch I feed direct ethernet connections to 1 desktop Apple computer and an Apple TV for movie streaming.
  • Also have an Apple Airport Extreme connected to the switch for my Wi-Fi
Looking for suggestions of the best configurations for my set-up.
Thank you!
Richard

    It sounds like a Watchguard firewall designed for SOHO settings might be a good option for you.

    Nice to see a user be proactive with home security. Yes I would get a firewall up and running as soon as possible. Kevin's suggestion sounds like a good fit. I'm a Windows person so I do not have a lot of exposure to Mac systems.
