Yes if it has a firewall function. However, most operating systems have a firewall feature built in anyway so all you need is a good anti-virus anyway.

The anti virus is there to protect you from viruses but for your wireless it's a different thing here.You can encrypt your wireless network by going into the router setting and change it there.

You might have an anti-virus or firewall program installed on this laptop that is blocking your access. Norton Internet Security and TrendMicro PC-cillin are notorious for creating connectivity problems if they are not properly configured.

They should still work but just won't be able to update and have the latest definitions. What brand of anti-stuff you using? Why can't you get online? Laptop or desktop? Wireless, LAN, or dial-up?
