Hi Geothe5228,

My name is ArmyMason, let me see if I have this straight, you want to know if you need the firewall software turned on in your router, if you have it installed on the computer. If this is the question I would have to say, I would find it safer having two firewalls running than one. Anyways Hardware firewalls are much safer than software firewalls, because it blocks the attacks before they get to the computer. Hope this answers your question. If you need further assistance I would suggest posting this question on a forum.

Thanks,
ArmyMason

How do I torn off fire wall on my time warner cable ARRIS wifi router


See step 2; it's a matter of just clicking the firewall protection to OFF, from the "set up firewall protection" menu.

Set Up Firewall Protection
You can set up firewall filters and firewall alert notifications on your wireless home network. You
can also block Java Applets, Cookies, ActiveX controls, popup windows, Proxies, and website
access. See Protection Level for more information.
To set the firewall protection level:
1. From any screen, click the Firewall-Protection Level menu link or click the Firewall menu
button on the SBG6782-AC Main Menu and then select Protection Level.
Figure 17 - Firewall Protection Level Screen
2. Click the Firewall Protection Setting drop-down button to select the firewall protection level.
Possible values: Low, Medium, High, or Off
Note: Selecting Off will disable firewall protection on your home network. Your computer(s)
and other Ethernet-enabled devices on your network will be at risk for possible attacks from
viruses and hackers.
3. Select each Web filter that you want to set for the firewall and then click Apply.

Features of McAfee Antivirus


<p>McAfee anti-virus features include anti-virus, anti-spyware tools, firewall software to protect your pc from all type of viruses and threats over the network. McAfee bundles a lot of features into its antivirus. Besides the classical protection features found in most antivirus products, McAfee also integrates a Silent Full Screen feature, which stops all antivirus notifications from being displayed while full screen applications are running, so it won't interfere with your work. The Secure File Shredder feature is another useful feature, which will allow you to permanently and totally delete confidential files, without leaving any traces of them and eliminating all recovery possibilities. It is also optimized for laptops, by integrating a battery-saving mode that will leave intensive scans that require more power and resources for later, when your laptop is plugged into an electricity source.<br /> <p> <br> <p>Some other features are "on access file scanner" - you can access the files while scanning them, "inbound and outbound firewall protection" - to monitor your incoming and outgoing traffic over the network, it can block any suspicious connection that can harm your computer, " spyware protection" - to detect and remove spywares in order to protect your pc and your personal data from hackers, " daily definition update "- this will help your protection software to have the most recent updated virus database, so that it can prevent newly added malicious codes spreading in your pc. Some other features are " McAfee X-Ray rootkit detection " this feature will detect rootkits and remove them, "McAfee Site Advisor " - displays a safety rating for websites based on tests for evidence of spam, malware and phishing, and " McAfee System Guards" - monitors a computer for activity that may be caused by virus infection or hacker activity.

Every time I try to download from macafee cd,I get and error and it shutdown my internet ,then I have to start in safe mode and restore, I am running windows 7


1. Uninstall any other firewalls you may have on your computer. On Windows, you can find these programs under the "Security Center" on the "Control Panel." To prevent computer shutdowns, make sure you plan to install the new McAfee Firewall right away.
2. Wait to receive an email from McAfee that you can download your firewall. After your payment has been processed, they will send you a link to log into the McAfee website.
3. Log in your account by selecting "My Account" from the McAfee website. You will need to give the email address and password that you set when you purchased the firewall.
4. Go to "Account Info." Under this heading, you will find a listing of the McAfee products, including the firewall. Choose the firewall selection and then double click the "Download" icon.
5. Restart your computer once the download is complete. McAfee Firewall will be set to launch at start up. Click on the McAfee icon on your Windows program tray. Make sure the firewall is turned to "On." This should help protect your computer from problems like shutdowns. If you still experience problems, run a virus and spyware scan to remove any malware.

Got dell 948 will not respond to computer, did update mcafee??????


If you have the McAfee Total or Family protection, then it has a firewall which could be causing your problems. Temporarily disable the firewall in McAfee and if the printer then works, you know what your problem is. McAfee is usually pretty good about fixing issues like that in the next update. Otherwise, if you are a current subscriber, you have access to their technical support at

Good luck! :)

I cannot unblock the firewall to enter my e mail account


Hi!

Are you talking about firewall blocking yahoo when you open it in outlook /outlook express or when you open yahoo in internat explorer.

And, if it is blocking it in outlook /outlook express then go to control panel-> windows firewall-> Exceptions-> see for outlook and outlook express-> then check the box next to it.

Also check the e-mail you are opening, maybe it contains a virus or trojans, and thats why its blocking your yahoo.

Thanks Rylee

1. Dissable any firewall you may have running ( windows firewall , norton firewall , macafee firewall )


2. Attempt to email again using your outlook express.


3. If you no longer receive the error message turn the firewall back on and configure it to allow
exceptions.

4. Configure the firewall to allow outlook express to be able to connect to the internet under all circumstances.



You may need to consult your firewalls documentation to configure it correctly.
Or you may ask one of our Experts.

You will need to explain to them what firewall you actually have.

Connecting Ninentendo DS with Nintendo WiFi USB connector


The Windows XP Service Pack 2 firewall is actually Norton Personal firewall re-branded with a simplified front end, Microsoft couldn't get they're own firewall to do the job properly (got to love MS quality!). As such he Windows XP Service Pack 2 firewall will offer you as much protection as any other commercial firewall out there. Your Nintendo WiFi USB adapter uses soft AP, in other words it uses a software WiFi Access Point to connect your DS to the web, as well as being able to make a connection to the web it also needs to make a connection between your PC and the DS and you need to think of these as separate networks because that is in-fact what they are. Make sure the second network is allowed in your McAfee firewall, that the Nintendo software is allowed to act as a server and that it is allowed to serve DHCP, in other words that it is allowed to assign IP addresses. The McAfee User Interface is about as friendly, intuitive and helpful as a dead squirrel so this may be a good time to do a bit of reading on ts.mcafeehelp.com
