modem not showing firewalled

  mitsme3 20:38 16 Jul 05

hi hope someone can help?

am running winXP Prof. sp2.

I had a try at F Secure internet suite & my cable modem showed as firewalled.
I went back to using Zonealarm & now modem does not show as firewalled! Anyone know why my cable modem doesn't recognise Zonealarm firewall?

you should only use one firewall

Hi thanks for your reply,
sorry it's taken so long to read it. I am using 1 firewall & that's Zonealarm, I uninstalled F Secure & reinstalled Zonealarm. Am not using XP firewall. Modem still not showing firewalled, which it did when I had F-Secure installed. Was wondering why it would show using one product & not another?

You have two Firewalls a Modem one and ZoneAlarm. I had problems doing that. So I removed ZoneAlarm

Hi can you tell me what kind of probs you had with Zonealarm? It came with my Broadband instal so I assumed that it was needed.

Stopping me connecting and some more, like my Wireless Laptop could not connect to router sometimes

I don't have many connection problems, PC can run a bit slow but I think it's because I neeed more RAM, getting some soon. As Zonealarm was recommended by my BB supplier I think I will stick with it. Thanks for your replies, have now just to get my headphone probs sorted! That's another Q. Again thanks!
