I dont think a firewall would be a solution for that.. the only purpose of a firewall is to block internet traffic. You need to log into your router and setup a WPA 128bit encryption, or at least a (WEP 64bit encryption (like your phone number with area code)) works very well.

I cannot print from laptop to wireless hp j4680 printer


Hi
one possible cause for this could be your connection setup. Make sure your antivirus is not blocking incoming connections from other wireless devices. You must disable your firewall for your wireless connection to be accessible to other wireless devices. If you're using norton then your firewall is managed by norton, so you should disable the firewall from the norton interface. Hope this works.

When trying to connect to the internet I get error code 52230?


Error Code: 52230 There appears to be an issue with your wireless router's firewall.

  1. It is possible that your Internet Service Provider (ISP) is not compatible with the Wii console. For instance, if you need to login with a user name and password when you try to go online for the first time after restrarting your PC, your ISP is likely not compatible. Please contact your service provider for more information.


  2. If this error occurs regularly, while you are playing at home, it is likely a connection problem related to your firewall settings. For more information on firewalls, click here.

  3. Are you using a Netgear brand wireless router? Our expeirence shows disabling the "SPI Firewall" of the router may help the connection. The "SPI Firewall" option is typically found under the "WAN Setup" tab of the router's settings. For information on accessing your router's settings, please click here and select the model of the Netgear router you own (if available).

Cannot get onto internet


disable the firewall on control panel.
check all the properties boxes on the network
connections and make sure firewall is disabled.

access the router setup and make sure that VCI is set to manual
and that you enter in the settings yourself (eg: 0,38 for aol broadband). Don't leave VCI, etc on auto, the router can't handle it.

No Internet Connection


Hi kathy

I believe you are connecting to the internet using wireless. Are you using this laptop to connect to a home wireless network or you connect using a cable. This will be a good way to analyze your problem

Post the ip address that you are getting.
You can get the ip by
start -run-type cmd enter
you will be in the black command prompt
just type ipconfig
and let me know what you get under ip address.

Also let me know the wireless router, your Internet Service Provider and also how many systems are there are at your home if you are connecting to a home wireless network.
Also let me know which is firewall or antivirus program that you have.

thank you do let me know if this works and do share your experience.

thank you

DI 524 Router Not able to connect to office VPN on Wireless


I have the same model router at home, just checked the settings, you should be able to pass through the router with a normal vpn connection.

If you use a special VPN client, like a CheckPoint Secure VPN client, the router might block it. Also you might want to ask your office's sys admin if you are not blocked by the firewall or something similar. Your office's sys admin will prolly solve your problem since he knows your work network's configuration and setup and how to connect to it.
