I just lost my broadband virginity and installed windows xp, both in a single day, and I'm reeling from the implications of this brave new world. What do I do about firewalls and antivirus? [mi]

I installed xp with sp2 and am running the updates. Do I need a separate firewall? And should I buy a particular wireless router for this, install something free, or pay the man for a commercial product?
I am running AVG free version for my virus protection, but is this really going to be good enough?
I know this stuff is googleable, and google I have, but there is a lot debate over this so I seek the wisdom of the Green.
