    More than likely, but it does not hurt to have more than one.

    Looking at the latest vulnerabilities that have been found in a lot of
    manufacturers modem software I think it is better to be safe than sorry.

    It would be for an external test, but probably not inside your own
    network. Generally, consumer-grade internet routers bridge wifi and
    wired networks together, and don't put a firewall between them.
