    Hi All,

    I have just started to use a Linksys ADSL2 AG241 Gateway. I am also using Comodo Firewall.

    Question is :- As the Linksys AG241 has its own built in firewall, can I safely uninstall Comodo or would it be best to use both :confused:

    Your thoughts and advice would be highly appreciated.

    Many Thanks :)

    i suppose the perfect answer would be yes run both. i however am just running windows firewall with the two i have built into the router (NAT and SPI). i was using comodo as i read that it was the best free firewall on the net, but for some reason it didnt seem to take to the pc very well. i dont know why maybe it was me i dont know. iwas getting fed up with it when i read that windows with the two built in would be sufficient.

    Thanks for your reply gollum . I have now unistalled Comodo and switched the XP firewall on. A fair speed increase !! Will see how things go.
