firewall blocking wireless connection RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I am not computer savvy.  Just had cable wireless router installed today.  My desktop is running Win XP and will not connect to the wireless network.  I disabled the windows firewall including Norton Security and I still cannot access the wireless network.  It is working for my laptop (Vista)but not the desktop(XP).  I do not have Linksys in my admin. tools-services to permanently deactivate it.  I do not know what programs or boxes to check or uncheck under the windows firewall security settings.  I am not sure what else to do.  The router is through cable network.  The message states "wireless connection firewalled" by what program, if they are disabled?
