Windows Live OneCare and Linksys Router Firewall RRS feed

  • Question


    My Linksys Router WRT54GS v1.1 has all Firewall option turned on (by default) like a) Block Anonymous Internet Requests b) Filter Multicast c) Filter Internet NAT Redirection and c) Filter IDENT (Port113).


    Lately I noticed degradation in response time such as streaming news from CNN, ABC & BBC as well long time response from all web sites.


    I wonder if there is a conflict beetwin Security setting in the Router and Windows Live OneCare.


    Can anybody help, please?

  • There should not be, but if you want to confirm, turn off the OneCare firewall for a bit, check out the performance. Then turn it back on and turn off the router Firewall options and check out the performance. Then put it back to default and leave the OneCare firewall on and observe if anything changes? I would think that your router firewall is inbound only, so it should not be impacted by the OneCare firewall on a connected client.
