    We just did the wireless thing with our two PCs and one laptop. The firewall that came with the PC really messed with the hub PC. It is called Freedom Firewall. It moved very slowly and would not allow access to email. Any ideas about other versions to try?

    Don't have Wireless setup myself so I'm not able to answer on compatability but you can check out various Software Firewalls here :

    http://www.free-firewall.org

    Note - Despite the 30 Day Trial reference they should continue to work beyond that time. Sygate does, and I believe most others will (though not sure about Norton.)

    Check out here also :

    RSM123, I mentioned this in another thread but your first link gives a forbidden access message.

    Works for me - try typing it in Google :


    http://www.google.com

    Type - FREE FIREWALL and scroll down past the entries for Zonelabs, its about the third one down and is a valid link.

    Even in Google I get a 403 Forbidden message. Styxx posted in the other thread that he got the error message too. At first I thought it might be because of Opera but I got the same message in IE.

    If I type in http://www.freefirewall.org (leaving out the hypen) I come up with a firewall recommendation site but I do not know if it is the same as the one you point to.

    Anyhow if you can access the site I guess there is another problem.

    Mskimberly, I did not mean to talk over your question with my above post.
    A lot of people here like Zone Alarm free or pro versions. I do not use it but I mention it for your consideration until others respond to your post.

    Try the indented entry, the first one appears to be their root without an index.html file.
