Public IP address

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by Lord Bergamot, Apr 11, 2015.

  1. I'm getting ready to switch ISP to one that has unlimited,
    so I don't have to worry about going over the allotment.
    The packages for 10 & 15 meg down have a public IP address.

    I'm not sure I want a public IP address. How does that affect
    security?

    I don't plan to run a server.

    Will hackers be looking for public IP addresses to hack?

    Should I get a better router with better security features? I have
    a Tplink ac/b/g/n.

    I'm going to keep using the Netgear hotspot for when I'm
    away from home.
