    Crossing a firewall converts your "inside" IP to an "outside" IP that the world "see's" you as...This is the IP address that the ISP provides to you...a hacker cannot access your P/C if he does not know what the computers IP routing is on the inside...because he only see's you on the outside of the firewall,,,not your P/C's "inside" address.

    Just to complete the hijack - Does my wireless router and/or software firewall do this or do I need a seperate piece of equipment?

    your router does this. The technology wasted wages is talking about is called NAT (Network address translation)
