If you are talking about the XP built in firewall:

Start> connect to> show all connections> right click you're network adapter that you are using and click Properties. On the "Advanced" tab, you can choose to enable or disable the firewall...

Alternative go via Control panel/network connectionsselect the properties of the network connection you using.Go to the Advanced page and it should be quite easy to find from there.

Thanks for your help. I have turned the firewall off but when I try to install Wingate it says "you must disable internet connection sharing and internet personal firewall in order to install wingate".

Can anyone help with this one please?

Hi I am trying to set up a lan network using Belkin. I was advised to use this software by the person that is setting up the network for me. I am just trying.

When I was looking at my internet properties I clicked on the tab that read connections. At the bottom it had a special are for LAN settings. It said that Lan settings do not apply to dial up connections. When I clicked on lan settings I saw a page that had automatic detect settings, Use automatic configuration script and Proxy server. Will either of these help me as I can not find the items u told me to turn off.

Many thanks
