Allow one computer to bypass firewall, but not others

What is the best way to allow one computer to bypass the internal firewall settings without making the whole network vulnerable? i use one PC for gaming, and need it open, and the other for business, which i would like to keep secure. the gaming pc connects wirelessly, the business pc is plugged straight in.

Any suggestions? possibly a DMZ for the gaming pc similar to my xbox 360?

Access thru 192.,168.0.1

That IP is internal only, and has no effect on anybody but you and your router. Local Network means same internal network, and not connecting via the cloud (out there in the internet).

Instead, set up virtual server session under advance settings in the routers web interface. This will allow access through the routers firewall.

You will have to do some fine tuning since I am not familiar with the games LAN access requirements.

I am trying to connect my ps3 to the internet wirelessly but when i enter the wep key and test connection it keeps timing out when trying to get ip address what do i do

Sounds to me that you have the internal firewall enabled in the router and haven't built ports or 'pin holes' to allow your ps3 to access the network through the gateway. If you know how to navigate the router's advanced setup page then the easiest option is to set it from either of the two available options for firewall security to the third option of 'clear sailing' . This is assuming that it's not just the router itself and other devices are able to connect without problem. The Netopia 3347 doesn't allow for NAT changing from type 2 or 3 which, despite what you may read, doesn't hinder gaming or speech, unless you go deep into the provisioning and are using it for vpn or as a bridge. I hope this is understandable and can at least point you in the right direction because this is one of the absolute BEST routers ever 'given away' with ADSL service from BellSouth/AT&T.

3. Continue to do this until all of the computers you want to add have

Click "Apply Changes" (e) to finish.

have to log into the router to change the MAC information. Should be in the browser > this will bring you to the routers gui.

RVL200 allows every computer on the network to access the internet but no-one can talk to another computer on the local net

1. this issue is due to firewall settings on each pc.
There may be security setting not allowing pc to pc communication.
2. check firewall settings for security for each pc
3. check the router firewall setting to allow permissions for pc to communicate on the network.

Netgear DGN2000: Only ethernet port 1 works. Lites work (flash green) for ports 2 - 4 but will not download Internet content. The browser indicates the site is found but downloading doesn't occur. I can...

Sounds like a configuration issue. With some routers you can set them up for bridging. Normally port 1 would connect your "bridge" and port 2-4 would connect your computers. You can test this by plugging your modem into port 1, and your computer in port 2. Power cycle your router and see if you get connectivity. It may be in your best benefit to reset the router to factory settings and see if 2-4 work with factory settings. After the reset, reconfigure the wireless side and your firewall.

Router Firewall

Not entirely. Hardware firewalls (such as the one in your router) will block incoming connection attempts based on the port they're using, the protocol, and a number of other factors (varied between firewall brands). Some are designed to block only popular attacks (DoS, PoD, crackers on port 80, Telnet connect attempts, etc...) while others will block a larger variety of attacks.

Anyways, software firewalls will block almost all incoming Internet traffic (except for the ones defined in the exceptions) along with almost all outgoing Internet traffic. The only way I find this to be useful is if you're trying to keep some private information private, or if you use that computer to determine if some software is trying to phone home (web beacon, trojan, dialer, etc...).

I really don't see the need for Software firewalls unless you're a hard-core web-surfer and don't care what you click on. If you do like the extra security, perhaps one of the better software firewalls is made by ESET.

I prefer ESET to Symantec's Personal Firewall because Symantec's Firewall on one of my older systems was hijacked by a virus a few years back which allowed the virus unprecedented access to the root of my Operating System. The virus gutted the computer without any alerts from Norton CE or the Firewall.

Anyways, I hope this was the answer you were looking for. If not, please feel free to respond with more details on what you were truly asking. All the best. ;-)
