Otter, I ran into the same problem. I live 12 miles from the nearest store, way out in the country (boonies) and all I was able to get was dial up. DSL finally came to our area, but I was a mile form the limits. I ended up getting a Satellite connection which I have tweaked to 2000 - 2200 Kbp/s. As for your question to how fast you should get, faster the better. If the price for faster service is a problem, remember that even if you go with the 256k bandwidth, you can tweak it and get a little more speed out of it. One thing to consider is how far you are from the nearest DSL substation, the further you are the less bandwidth you will get. You could see if anyone around you has it and see how it runs at 256k.

As for firewalls, I like Zone Alarm best.
