I've been following the thread on securing home networks running Windows, and I have a quesion:

Is the security check offered by Gibson Research Corporation at https://grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 a good test of the security of my home network?

According to its measurements, my PCs are running in full stealth mode and can't be found. I'm wondering how accurate that really is.
