    Are you running XP or Vista. Firewall can be turned off on them via the Security Center. Routers also have firewalls as well as some modems. Are you totally sure it's the OS firewall.

I purchased an acer aspire have net router every thing but just by pushing the fn and f3 button still cant seem to get open launch manager to turn on wi-fi help please


Hi,

The best way to check if the computer can access to Internet is to boot the computer to "Safemode with Networking", to do so, restart the computer and as soon as it restarts keep on tapping F8 key, now select "Safemode with Networking" from the Advance boot menu. Try to connect to internet. If you are able to connect to Internet then the issue is with the firewall on you computer, contact the firewall manufacturer or settings. If you are still unable to connect to Internet, then the internet setting are not correct, you may need to contact the ISP.

Thanks and regards,
Jitha.G.J

I am connected to the internet but I cant get into my Facebook. Why would that happen. I play farmville and cant get into FB to play my game


Your firewall may have blocked facebook.com... or your internet explorer may have restricted access to it... What you can do is to reset internet explorer settings by going to tools>internet options> advanced and then reset... or you can temporarily disable your firewall to test it.

I cant install yahoomessenger its asking for firewall settings which i cant understand where to do that


A system designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls can be implemented in both hardware and software, or a combination of both. Firewalls are frequently used to prevent unauthorized Internet users from accessing private networks connected to the Internet, especially intranets. All messages entering or leaving the intranet pass through the firewall, which examines each message and blocks those that do not meet the specified security criteria.
to disable firewall
  • Right-click on My Network Places
  • Select Properties
  • Double click Local Network Connection or Modem
  • Click Advanced
  • Uncheck Internet Connection Firewall

you may have a firewall that is blocking. If you have recently installed any antivirus programs, they sometimes come with firewalls that block certain programs from accessing the internet. Just adjust your firewall setting or remove your firewall entirely. although I don't recommend you turning off your firewall as it is your first line of defense when on the internet.

Internet


what type of program are you using? check the properties or references of the programs that you are using. you may need to configure it in accordance with your home network setup. your firewall (software or router/hardware) may also be a cause. check your firewall settings and enter the port number being used by the program. make sure that the firewall allows your program to run and connect to the internet.
