Security / Firewalls :: Windows Vista Firewall / Internet Not Working
Apr 4, 2011
i am using windows vista on my laptop.i was using zone alarm firewall, but switched it to windows firewall.after switching, my internet was cutoff. i can see that i am connected to my network, but cant get to internet.when i run diagnosis on my laptop, it gives me three options:
my Ethernet driver is having hardware issue.
my wireless driver is having hardware issue.
ip protocol binding is having issue. check ipv4 and ipv6 settings.
Windows 7 I could not able to browse internet, because it showing DNS problem. But I can able to ping my gateway and I can able to get internet in Windows Xp. I am using firewall in my campus. There is any problem in my firewall?
I have disabled windows firewall in Windows 2003 server control panel but only few ports are shown opened when i scanned with advanced port scanner why other ports are closed.How to open the closed ports?
At my small business (30 employees) we currently don't have a hardware firewall. Should I have one? If so what do you recommend? We are all connected to a Windows Server 2003 domain in one office building.
I installed Comodo Firewall today, and I couldn't access my Internet from then. I actually liked it's UI and all and want to keep it. The only something that I felt that might be causing the problem is "Use Comodo Secure DNS Server"? Is it likely the reason to be the cause of the problem?
I have problem with the Lan-to-Lan VPN tunnel.the VPN working fines since 9 months ago without any problems.Suddenly got the problem!,In last two days we faced problem the VPN down.in first time the problem in phase-2.. but after that in phase-1... in latest no data packet received to their side.
Previously we had no problem with remote users connecting via VPN but recently they can't connect and i've checked the firewall and it shows the errors (see attached jpeg) but I'm not sure what it all means.
Last year i installed nortor 360 gold edition onto my laptop and now it is telling me that it is not automatically protected against viruses and spyware, even though it has the latest update and no problems have been found on my laptop.
I need remote access to certain programs on my home PC but I just cannot get it to workWhen I set the programs port preferences (i.e. port 8087), I can connect with "127.0.0.1:8087". both the utorrent and webcamXP work fine. But when I replace the localhost with my external IP (lets say 18.104.22.168, so that would be "http://22.214.171.124:8087" in the case of webcamXP and I tried port forwarding: I have added the port to my NAT in the router's setting so it should be fine, but it is not (numbers are fictual of course)[CODE]
I was under the impression that those global addresses that we used with NAT were from the outside IP addresses range?Lets say my outside IP address is idk 126.96.36.199 /30 and I only had two usable IPs (since you can't use network and broadcast IPs) so how would I set up NAT for a couple of Inside addresses with a shorting of addresses like this? Idk if that makes sense what I'm trying to say
I've been trying to open ports 5800 and 5900 for UltraVNC and checking them with online port checkers, but they are always listed as closed. I've even tried taking town windows firewall, my router firewall (although as soon as I disable and apply, it automatically switches back to enabled again), and also DMZ'ing my router. I wonder if it might have something to do with my new modem, but in the config page for that, the advanced settings are locked out. the modem is an arris TM722G, and the router is a linksys wrt-54G with DDWRT firmware.
I'm running windows 7 x64 and using a static local IP, I want to be able to use DynDNS to connect to UltraVNC.
I have 2 computers, One running Vista 32, Desktop.Another, Laptop, Win 7 64bit.Both computers have given Error 651 when using PPPoE wired connections, usually at the peak of the day.My ISP says that Error 651 is the problem, while I am starting to think its the amount of bandwidth their giving my neighborhood/home.Also, can that dosen't work,how to fix the overall problem of my Internet shutting off at peak hours?

I've a Airtel Broadband connection with a Beetel WiFi Router. I've installed Windows Vista on my laptop. Though the network icon in the Task Bar shows that its connected I'm not able to connect to the internet. I've tried different browsers but failed. Also I've tried to ping websites in command prompt even that is not working. The connection works absolutely fine on my brother's Dell laptop hence I'm sure that there is no problem with the Router.
Here is the complete system configuration you would need to know. Dell Latitude D630 Laptop. Windows Vista 32bit OS. Beetel WiFi Router.
I have a sonicwall tz-170 that has a standard interface. It is the main system with IP 192.168.1.1.Another location using IPs 192.168.0.1 has a dvr (192.168.0.154) with ports 80, 37777 and 37778.I can access them from the main location just fine but setting up a service then a rule does not allow me to connect from outside the network. I assume this is the same for anything trying to reach the other side of the vpn but I'm not sure
Recently i had suffering with wireless connection problem, currently my wireless router connected to WAN directly, after that go into firewall and then go thru switch to end user PC, for LAN user there is no issue, but for wireless connected PC it is prompted with limited connectivity problem(DHCP is disable on router), after check with ipconfig /all. it seem likely due to wireless PC cannot get the IP from DHCP server. i am using DLink615 router. i had checked firewall setting there is firewall policy that connected all router ip into company LAN, but i don't think there is DHCP VPN setting up. is there anyway i can go thru firewall and get IP from DHCP server because if i set up DHCP on router, it cannot pass thru and access to LAN.
I've got a problem with Norton 360 6.0. Everytime it updates its definitions, my internet disconnects and I have to reboot my computer to get it back. However, every time I try to command prompt a ping, it says I'm connected as does my networking center.
I'm having some problems with a sonicwall pro2040. The problem is this: I can access the sonicwall remotely, and I can ssh into the sonicwall and ping various websites, and get replies, but my connected PCs (Connected by the LAN port) have no internet access. I have never set up a sonicwall before this one, and I feel like there is something I may be missing. Do Sonicwall devices block WAN access by default? Do I need to configure the default route?
how can I set password for my wireless internet? I used to have one, but today I have fully restarted modem and router to factory settings, so password is gone. Now I'd like to set it up again, I have TP-Link router.
I am having some trouble with the antivirus software.I had AVG antivirus installed but I thought it was causing some problems.So I unistalled it and downloaded a trial version of Bitdefender.Got it installed and found out I can't browse the web via Firefox. So I was trying to go through all the settings in Bitdef. but no luck.Uninstalled BD, rebooted the comp, still no internet. I did clean the registry and spyware as well.But the weird bit is that somehow I can browse the internet using old IE8 (64bit only. 32bit is not working?).I was also trying to re-install AVG but it could not complete as the connection with their server was blocked.It seems like something is blocking everything apart from 64bit ver. of IE8.
I'm finished with formatting my computer to install a clean Windows 7 Ultimate. Then, I connect my PC to the modem I have, to browse the Internet of course. Well, everything runs fine on the first start, let's say I have installed Google Chrome, Microsoft Office, and some other software I still not installed it. And when I restart it and tried to run Google Chrome for example, it said "Google Chrome has stopped working", it's happened to almost every software in my PC, let's say I tried to install VirtualDJ, then the Installer is corrupted, so was the Google Chrome installer and Microsoft Office Installer. Before they are all corrupted, there was a suspicious thing named 'winblmguf.exe' trying to access the Internet through my firewall.
I have been having some issues with Windows Audio needing to be restarted every time I log on. Also my theme has changed unexpectedly. I also noticed that Wndows firewall isn't started and it won't let me start it it gives me this...Could not start the Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICX) on local computer. Error 3 access is denied.
So, I have this router at home a WRT150N. I put in access restrictions so my siblings won't stray onto unwanted pages.I enabled SPI Firewall Protection and what do you know, it worked. The next day though, we didn't have an internet connection.I checked everything with the modem (power cycles, etc.) and then I tried the router. Upon disabling SPI Firewall Protection, the internet connection came back.I tested it yet again, to see if it really was the SPI. Enabled and bam, no internet access again. I made sure to select "Allow" in the Access Restrictions for "Internet access during selected days and hours" making sure also that "Everyday" and "24 Hours" are selected.Now my question is, what do I need to do in order to enable my Access Restrictions without having to lose internet connection via the SPI Firewall?
I am connected to my network wirelessly and I have Internet acces (according to the symbol at the bottom right) bu the Internet doesn't work. At the moment it keeps fluctuating between giving me interne and not I am using Skype to tell me if I have Internet ( when it's green I do when it's grey I don't) I have tried many things on forums like obtaining ip automatically or obtaining a fixed ip. I've tried renewing the ip and all this doesnt work.
Is it true that the FCC is investigating the Pogo game site because of poor security? Is Java the cause of this problem?I'm very leery of getting on the Pogo site because I've been told that my computer could get a virus and crash.
