Default Firewall Program

Howdy,
I have a wireless g router already and it has a built in firewall inside of it. Should I install a firewall on my notebook so just to be sure nothing happens and etc. If yes what firewall program I should install? From what I seen there's zonealarm, norton firewall, network ice,. Along time ago I used zonealarm, norton firewall, and network ice at diffrent times on my former other desktop computer. Any help will be appreciated it. I would like to download a firewall that shows the i/p address and tells what it is and etc

I've used mcafee's firewall with good results. If you configure it right it lets you trace back to whoever is attempting to hack/attack you, which i discovered on my own troubleshooting a friend's pc connection once. I had the guy's ip and some other info in moments and had one of my hacker buddies give him a dose of trouble.
