OneCare Firewall & Wireless Print-Server WPSM54G RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I recently installed a wireless-g print server on my desktop w/XP with no issues; however while installing Laptop w/Vista I was unable to Install "virtual USB port." After many hours on the phone w/Linksys they tried to say it was an incompatibility issue with my printer drivers.  I researched the forums and found my answer. The Live OneCare Firewall was blocking my installation. I turned off the firewall (Windows firewall is already turned off) and it worked GREAT! I tried turning on One Care firewall again, didn't work. Clearly my problem is the One Care Firewall, which is now turned off. I suppose I don't really need it with the Linksys Router firewall but would like to know if it is possible to reconfigure it to work with the wireless printer server. I have no issues w/ XP with the firewall on. Very strange..............any suggestions or should I just leave the OneCare firewall off on the Vista Computer>
