Question about PC Desktops
BELLS RED FLAGS ALARMS WHISTLES WARNINGS
a site that requires you shut down protection,
has some intent of using that lack of protection.
usually its something nasty
online gaming should not require more than the opening of the NAT in the router to the address of the game host.
check the settings of the router many have prewritten rules for the major game hosts, that just need to have the checkbox marked.
I have 3 sons with different online gaming and have not had to disable the firewall
using the routers built in menu, cant tell you the address beyound 192.168.0.* because no details on router model, you can enable gaming mode, and leave the firewall intact.
goto the manufacturer(router) webpage and check the FAQ for your router
