I'm a newbie when it comes to wireless. I installed a Netgear WGR614 v.6 router, and eventually got it to work OK. I have only one other computer on my home network for now, a Dell Inspiron E1705 laptop.
- I can't access the laptop and it can't access my PC when I have my Agnitum Outpost v 1.0 freeware firewall acitve on my desk PC. When I turn off Outpost, everything works OK. Do I really need Outpost on my PC now? Should I turn off Microsoft firewall on my laptop? It's already off on the PC.
- If netgear installed its own firewall, how do I adjust its controls? Outpost would occasionally ASK me if I wanted my computer to access certain sites (mostly for updates). I haven't seen any such requests yet from Netgear. I see no icons on my desktop for it. The box says it has a double firewall (NAT and SPI), but as I installed netgear I don't recall seeing any info on it.
