I'll try and be clear....

I have a dl-604 router which, I thought, had stealthed all my ports including 113 which I configured myself, tested at grc.com. This router was installed and configured two years ago. I have always run a software firewall too, but had disabled the software firewall (Norton 2005) to test that the router was doing it's job when I configured it.

Now, I have just uninstalled Norton as I no longer want to pay the fees when my subscription expires. I was planning on not installing another software firewall, only a freeware anti-virus and using Windows firewall as well.....or not using Windows firewall.

The latest test indicates that all my ports are only closed, with the exception of 0, which is stealth. 113 is closed too, but not stealth.

Even though my software firewall was turned "off" could it have been doing the stealthing?? Should my router actually be stealthing the ports or is closed ok??

I run WinXP home sp2. Thanks in advance for any ideas!
