linksys wireless router

  tommm 00:38 22 Mar 04

I have 2 computers, networked and connected to ntl cable via a linksys router. It all works superbly and I am really pleased with my setup. One thing puzzles me though....How do I know that the hardware firewall is working? With the zone alarm software one, it is possible to check, either by constant alerts, or by looking at the log, just how many possible incursions have been thwarted. How can I tell if my routers firewall is doing the job for which Im paying it? Itis definitely enabled in the setup utility. Thanks for any advice.

You try click here and run the Shields Up test(s).

Try the tests with Zone Alarm enabled and disabled.

I use a router and I get exactly the same result whether my software firewall is on or off- I think the test(s) are blocked by the router firewall.

I'm thinking of getting rid of the software firewall.

I could be wrong.
