    First, start by identifying your firewall. If it's some kind of residential, routing appliance made by Netgear, D-Link, Linksys, etc., it's probably not preventing you from going out. Does your computer have an IP address? Is it on the same network as the firewall?

If your computer is connected to a network or the Internet, it is advisable to use computer security tools, such as a firewall, to protect your computer from unauthorized access or viruses. Windows operating systems come with a built-in firewall, malware protection and Internet security. These settings are automatically configured to the factory's default settings when you purchase the operating system. To alter the settings for these security features, access the Windows Security utility through your system's Control Panel.

Open the "Windows Security" utility by opening your "Start" menu and selecting the "Control Panel" option on the right-hand side. Windows XP users can click on the "Security Center" link in this window. For Vista users, click on the "Security" option, and then click on "Windows Security Center." Click on the "Windows Firewall" option to change the settings for your firewall, if you are using XP. You can turn the firewall on or off, and also configure which programs are allowed through the firewall. Vista users should click on the "Windows Firewall" link in the left window pane and click on the "Change settings" link. In this window, you can block programs from passing through your firewall and grant access to new programs. Click the "Internet Options" selection to configure your Internet security settings. You can raise or lower the security level for different zones using preset configurations, or you can create a custom security level. You can also reset the Internet security level to its default settings. Click on "Automatic Updating" in the Windows Security Center to configure your system's update settings. In Vista operating systems, click on "Windows Update" and "Change Settings." You can configure your update settings to automatically check for updates daily or weekly. You can also set a convenient time for your system to update to prevent interruption. Automatic updating can be turned off by selecting the corresponding option toward the bottom of the window. Select the "Malware Protection" option to edit malware settings if you are using Vista. This option is not available in XP's version of Windows Security Center. You can turn the malware protection programs on or off using the arrow to the right of the "Malware Protection" bar. Click the "X" button to exit Windows Security Settings.

Can not open racingandsports page


When browsing the web, there are some instances where you encounter pages that cannot be loaded. There are several reasons why, ranging from an error on the website itself to the settings on your own computer.

Page Cannot be Found
A "Page cannot be found error" may occur when certain Web pages are no longer online. This can be due to the deletion of the page, or if the page was relocated to a different section without having its links updated. b> Firewall Issues b> There are some pages that cannot be displayed on your computer simply because they are being blocked by the firewall software installed on your computer. To remedy the issue, change your firewall settings to allow access to these pages. Virus or Malware b> If you have an anti-virus installed, this will prevent you from accessing pages that may contain possible threats to your computer. Websites that contain viruses or malware, or so-called "Attack sites" will be blocked from being loaded on your computer. b> Connection Timed Out b> When you get this error message, it means your internet connection has timed out, which will cause your page not to load. You can contact your internet service provider to resolve this issue. Hope this helps.

I can not get my logitec internet pro to connect to my computer is there someone who can help me


this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled
make sure your modem/routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem first to make sure that you are getting a connection
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down network adapters + expand Ethernet driver you might see a yellow question mark? This means you need to update the driver right click you will have options to update driver disable uninstall or select properties general you will have the options to troubleshoot or to update driver rollback or uninstall
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver right click to install driver
last resort ring your ISP internet sevice provider get them to check your modem for internet access online
hope this helps

How come every time i download limewire in try to run it always say no connection.but when i ask other people they tell me to check my firewall but when i do lime wire be on the list so what should i do to...


There is many potential firewalls in the typical home that may prevent LimeWire from accessing the service.

The computer with LimeWire is the first place to check. If using Windows, there is a built in firewall with access rules. If you have a Internet Security Suite such as Norton 360, then it will need to be configured to allow access. Next is the router or firewall if you use one. The manufactured of the device will have documents on their website that explain how to configure the device for port forwarding. If this is the case make sure the ports associated with LimeWire are forwarded correctly.

After that may be the modem itself as many modems such as ones used for DSL are multipurpose devices and make use of a built in firewall & modem. Search your internet service provider for files related to access and configuration of your modem.

If all this is setup and it still does not work, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may have blocked the ports specific to LimeWire and many other peer to peer file sharing networks (P2P) such as Bit Torrent. If the traffic is blocked by the ISP there is little that can be done.

    No Internet Connection


    Hmm... this sounds more of 2 things. Firewall and security. Is this a new unit that you have? If not, i suggest you take a look at the settings of the WAP to ensure you do not have mac authentification on (if it's WEP, you will be asked for the encrypted key, and since you did not mention any of this, i assume it's more of a MAC filter setting, preventing you from connecting to the network).

    Alternatively, you might wanna find out if you have the WAP's firewall turned on, preventing you from accessing the network (norton's 360 firewall is a pain in the a**). Also, as a precuationary measure, you might wanna update the latest image of linksys's WAP, to ensure optimal performace. Hope this helped. Thanks.

    WIn XP has a built in Firewall that may be enabled. To disable this Click on Start, go to control panel and then network connections. Right click the local area connection and go to properties. Click the advanced tab and uncheck: Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to this computer from the Internet. If you do not do this it can prevent you from using the router or even accessing the router configuration screen. The reason it causes a problem is the router already has a firewall and the built in firewall can cause a problem.
