Three Firewalls You say I have 3 firewalls; use only the modem firewall. However, I uninstalled Norton Internet (one of the three) when Norton gave me support; and I uninstalled Windows firewall; still, the problem wasn't solved.

You can't 'uninstall' the Windows Firewall, just deactivate it. Another option is to turn off the modem firewall (the strongest of the three, now two) and to activate the Windows one (the weakest but most annoying one). Now you stated that you can't use Internet Explorer but everything else was ok, skip IE, use Firefox or Opera.
Good luck!

Often two firewalls on the same LAN conflict. Both are trying to do the same job; the conflict may cause an otherwise good Internet connection to drop. If this happens, use the NETGEAR firewall, and disable the other. Two situations are described here, but the general approach applies to any firewall active on a NETGEAR LAN.
The Windows firewall may be turned on without you knowing, for example, if the XP Network Setup Wizard was used.
To Disable Windows' Firewall
See Microsoft knowledgebase article: How to: Enable or Disable Internet Connection Firewall In Windows XP. (Note that you must be logged on as administrator, if you are not, no "Advanced" tab will appear as described.) For hints about using these Windows features, search firewall in Windows help, and select the article Enable or Disable Internet Connection Firewalls.

To Enable the NETGEAR Firewall
Consult your router's User Guide or Reference Manual. Look for sections such as "Using Basic Firewall Services" or "Allowing and blocking keywords, sites, services". Manuals are available for downloading on this site.

To Disable the Norton Firewall
  1. Right-click the Norton Internet Security icon on the system tray and select Disable.

To Disable the McAfee Firewall
  1. Uninstall McAfee
  2. Reinstall McAfee, selecting Custom Installation.
  3. Unselect McAfee Firewall.
  4. Finish the rest of the McAfee installation as you did before.
To Disable Zone Alarm
  1. Right-click the Zone Alarm icon in the System Tray, and select Shutdown Zone Alarm.
Also search the Zone Alarm forum for such issues as this product continually logging people off AOL, or Windows XP wrongly reporting that Zone Alarm has been turned off.

EMule TCP Port 11522 not reachable


Does you norton program have a firewall included with the software? If so, your windows firewall was probably turned off automatically because having two firewalls running simultaniosly can cause a conflict between the two firewalls and therefore will not work correctly.If you have a firewall included with your norton software make sure it is turned on and leave your windows firewall off, other wise turn your windows firewall back on.

As far as your situation with the broadband modem, I have to ask: Is your Thomson hardware a broadband router (wireless/wired), or are you using an access point? (wireless/wired) If you are using a "router" there is no way to set it up to work with the modem the cable company provided you. However, if the Thomson modem hardware is an "access point" the only thing I can suggest is to follow these steps:

1) Pull the power cord out of the back of the modem that the cable company provided to you.

2) Next, plug in your Thomson router in to the ethernet port of the computer.

3) You are then going to configure that device. Start by going to the "network and Internet" section in your control panel. There should be a section in there where you can click that says "setup a new network connection" There should be an option to set up and "access point" and it will search for your hardware. If your hardware is found you will probablybe promped to input information about your router and once that's done it should set up successfully. If it isn't successful by some chance don't give up just yet! Go to step 4-

4) Shut down your computer.

5) next, switch the ethernet cable going from your Thomson hardware to the modem from the cable company.
6) You will then need a second ethernet cable to go from a second port of the Thompson hardware in to the ethernet port on your computer.

7) next, plug the power cord back in to the modem from the cable company and your Thompson hardware and start up your computer.

You should be able to get a wired internet connection if all goes well. If you have a wireless access point go ahead and set up a separate internet connection only this time choose "wireless" and choose your settings. I hope this helps. Feel free to contact me anytime if you have more questions. Happy Holidays!

I have a dell inspirion with vista and I can not connect to the internet using a cable modem.


Have you tried disabling your firewalls, f it came with norton 360 or norton internet security remove it and then try connecting if you can then its your firewall stopping it
another way to try without uninstalling is to click on the start button then in the search box type CMD and press return
in the command prompt that opens type
ping www.google.com and hit enter
if you get four packets sent and four received your firewall is blocking the internet connection. Remove it try the internet if it works reinstall it and it will detect the new network and allow you access.

type ipconfig in the command prompt window and hit enter if you get a 169.x,x,x x=any number then the laptop has no ip. Make sure that the network card isnt disabled
if they all fail and the laptop hasnt got an ip address, then the problem is the cable modem, is the internet active? I.e. you can plug it into another pc and it works

I cannot install the latest version of yahoo messenger


Your Windows firewall may be interfering with the connection. You can unplug from the internet, then turn off your firewall, (security center), then install, then turn the firewall back on and reconnect your internet cable.
Or, follow the instructions from Yahoo here and here.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Skillground error 357


i've tried (for several days now) to download the software, but everytime i click "download & play" nothing happens
(it looks like the 'page' just keeps refreshing it self for several minutes, ending in a "error code 357" message!

I contacted skillground numerous times , and thou they are helpful in their replies.. they keep saying that its my router and/or firewall that prevents the software from downloading.. BUT

even when i disable the router (running the internet cable direct from the "wall plug" into my pc) , and disableing my firewall (Norton) (i have even tried uninstalling the Norton).... its still the same problem

I've allowed cookies... set the internet security to minimum ..disabled the router and Norton firewall, ..removed the skillground 'program' and even tried to create another account ...but its still the same problem ... so i've ran out of idea's

but have you tried checking (in addition to your router, and norton firewalls) the built-in vista firewall?

Hi

Enabling TCP/IP ports needs to be done from your firewall. Often (these days) two firewalls are in place. One on the internet router/modem and another on your PC. Example McAfee, Norton, ZoneAlarm, etc. Windows XP and Vista also have built-in firewalls (port blockers). If ports are required to be opened, you need to configure it on your internet router/modem and also on your software firewall (as the case might be).
Each internet router/modem and software firewall have specific ways to configure ports so you have to look up the vendors steps or reply with more info and will respond at best effort.
