I got my netgear wirless setup with XP and running Sygate Firewall Pro,
to enable me to view websites properly I have to disable sygate,
I cant access my hotmail and some webpages wont show up ie. ebay
and others if sygate is enabled,
I had the same setup running ok before I done a new install of XP a while
back,

I've tried varous setting in sygate but no luck

Any ideas?

Thx in advance

Maka sure you have the XP firewall turned off.
Check your security level in Internet Explorer....
Tools/options/security

Re: Netgear DG834G problem
sounds like firewall overkill.  your router has a built in router and that's
generally enough.  add in windows firewall and sygate just adds to the
clutter.

Thanks for the replys...

XP was turned off, I changed security level to default, this was
on custom, I can't recall ever changing these settings before.
I still cant access my hotmail or ebay account with sygate enabled,
but pop 3 pipex seems to be working ok.. getting there :-)

Sometimes when firewall is enabled I get intrusion's and warning's,
router firewall only blocks incoming traffic, sygate is good for spyware
etc..
I'd like to keep running it :-( I had them running together before,
I have anti spyware installed aswell.

btw:  I'm running XP Pro SP2

Cheers
