You encourage him to buy something, and discourage him from learning? Where would we be if we all took your advice?
Ralf didn't imply he was incapable of learning or that he was looking for the absolute fastest option. Maybe preface such advice, instead of implying that this sort of lazy response is the best or only one. 

Maybe he has an interest in learning, or doesn't want to be behind a NAT, doesn't want to spend money, or likes the options a linux router provides.
