Question about Belkin (F5D6230-3) Wireless Router
Posted by Anonymous on
Windows XP includes a built in firewall. By default, the firewall is enabled (turned on). In order to use your router, you must turn off the Windows XP firewall. Your router already provides a firewall for you so turning off the Windows XP firewall will not make your system any less secure. Follow the steps below to disable your Windows XP firewall: 1. Right-click on "My Network Places" on the Desktop. 2. Select "Properties" from the menu that is displayed. 3. Right-click on the Local Area Connection icon that corresponds to your network adapter. 4. Select "Properties" from the menu that is displayed. 5. Click the "Advanced" tab. 6. "Internet Connection Firewall" will have a checkmark next to it. Remove this checkmark by clicking it once. 7. Click "OK" to apply the change. Windows will ask you if you want to turn off the firewall. Click "Yes" You have now successfully disabled the Windows XP firewall. You are still protected by your router's firewall. You should now be able to access your router.
