Firewall/security How do I install the firewall and any other security measures?

Posted by on

  • Jimmbob Jan 03, 2008

    I might be trying to fix something that isn't broken. The SBG900 firewall/encryption may already be in place. Cable company installer asked for a new phrase and entered it. Of course I didn't know what he was doing and he didn't say. What causes me to think I may have a problem is that the screen page on my Linksys WMP54GS adapter shows security is disabled. Since it broadcasts it's own signal I don't know if I am protected. Both units support WEP.

Most in home routers come with a disk to install ( more often than not norton ), If it didnt come with a disk you should go into the setting control of the router by typing in the ip adress in your IE bar, and clicking on the tab of security/firewall and putting them to the correct specifications. If that still fails for you, I would suggest going to the web and downloading a new driver for the router. Hope it helps!

Do i need to install anything before using my notebook on the net


Not necessary. Your notebook contains pre-installed windows essential security application. So it protects your computer. But if you using internet constantly on your notebook you need an Internet Security Software to protect and safe guard your information.

Service Pack 2 (SP2) appeared on 2004-08-06. It is an important upgrade and should be installed on all Windows XP computers. The same is true for Service Pack 3 (SP3), which appeared on 2008-05-06.

However, due to the general tightening of security, there is the potential that some security measures interfere with special functions you had been using on your computer, and you may have to loosen some security settings accordingly. Given the complexity of some Windows XP installations, there is also always some potential for some other defect to show up.
List of fixes included in Windows XP Service Pack 2
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/811113/
Available disk space is used as follows (LIS = Local Install Source, the install files remain on disk; CAB = files of type .cab, cabinet).
Free disk space Features 600 MB Minimum for safe installation
(and safe operation of Windows XP) < 1.5 GB No LIS 1.5 .. 2 GB LIS and used CABs > 2 GB LIS and all CABs A general advice, particularly after changing hardware, is to power everything down, including any routers, cable modems, switches, hubs, and the like, wait 10 seconds, then power them up again. Rebooting without powering down is not enough in some cases.

Your problem may not be related to Service Pack 2 at all. If you have the firewall set up properly, but still have network problems, continue with the Windows Network Problem Solver page.
Microsoft offers free technical telephone support for Service Pack 2. In the US call (800) 936-5700 and press 0 to get to an operator. Ask for technical support on SP2.

This article does not generally cover installations running a third party software firewall. If you want to rely on the information given here, you have to completely uninstall any third party firewall software first.

Software Firewalls and this router


You can never have too much security, however there are some firewalls that will not work with hardware firewalls, that includes the all Linksys Routers . Keeping this in mind, some software firewall will continue working after the router is installed. If it does, it shouldn't need to remove it, because it's an extra layer of security. However if there are difficulties using the Internet with the Software firewall after installing the router, try disableing it to see if internet is accessable. If the internet works after disabling the software firewall, then remove the firewall.
