  • The firewall on your router and the firewall in OneCare are independent of each other and should not conflict. There is no priority to deal with, nor would you want there to be.

    I suspect that what is happening is that the router is not giving the PC an IP address and DNS settings in a timely fashion due to the OneCare firewall being in restricted Public mode when you are trying to initially connect. I recommend contact support for help with this:
