They most likely all use a similar firewall as they are all the same brand. Never heard of airlink so I couldn't comment on how good or bad they may be.

well in my humble opinion if you are only going to use the wired feature go for the wired router, but thats only if you are 100% positive that you plan on never using wireless in the next year. It will save you money. Now lets say you may use wireless within the next year, then I would go for the Wireless G router.

Now what do I look for in a router: Auto MDI/MDx, 9which never requires a crossover cable), NAT with SPi, and Mac filtering.

I think they are all good firewalls, actually they maybe a no name to most, I do know the name, and they do make pretty good routers, but a lot of your decision depends on wheter or not you may do wireless within the next year.

All of them have good firewalls.

now all the routers in my house, 3 of them total are wireless routers, I have two fo them with wireless off, my motorola wireless G is on, but thats the safest one imo. It was cheape for me to buy them as wireless routers.
