1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button how do i put uup a fire wall so no one can use my  - getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Network and Internet, clicking Network and Sharing Center, and then clicking Manage network connections.
2. Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
3. Click the Sharing tab, and then make sure to un-select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection check box.

The screen should look something like this:

To check your firewall status, look at the article here: http://www.vista4beginners.com/Turn-on-off-the-Windows-Vista-Firewall

The primary goal of a firewall is to keep people out of your machine, if you are trying to stop people from using your wireless internet signal you will need to implement some form of security. The security can be WEP, WPA, or WPA2. Those are normally sufficient to keep ordinary users from abusing your network connection. If you need specific directions please include the wireless router model with your post.

Hope this helps.

You will either have to put a wireless card into your desk top or you will have to run CAT 5 wire from the router to the device.

I networked my desk top vista with my dell, my dell can reconize the connection but can't pick up the internet


Did you put in youe network password, if you are running wireless you have to input the same password as the other machines and wireless devices. If your running wired go into your network and click on properties you may just have to physically add it to the network, use the connection wizard if you arent sure it's in the network properties menu, just click on "add a new connection" and follow the prompts, i can only assume so much without more info. You may have a router issue, but try this first

No Internet via zoom X6 wireless router to desk top, lap top ok.


Access your zoom router by using the laptop which still has access to the router.

Your going to have to open your Wireless Network Connection Status window located under your network settings.

If you see this window your going to left click the (details) button


Now you should see a IP DNS server address
for example: 192.168.1.xxx

Type that address onto the address bar of your web browser.

it should take you to your router setup page.

There you will need to check if the lan port is enabled

Canon imageclass MF3240 and Vista - not working?


uninstall the printer and all of software. then down load the drivers and software and save them to your desktop. then disconnect your pc from the internet, disable your anti virus and fire wall, then run the install from your desk top. alot of anti virus software see's scanner drivers as virus like activity and will not allow them to be installed. all in one installs like this need to be done without anti virus software running. i think this will solve you problem ive solve it many times like this
