router firewall

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Sanford Aranoff, Nov 17, 2005.

  1. I bought a Belkin router with my XP SP2 system. It does not permit Skype
    to work unless I disable the router firewall. Belkin does not understand
    the reason. They suggested I take my old Netgear router and hook it up
    before the Belkin as a firewall, and disable the Belkin firewall. I
    tried this, but got no Internet connection, even after rebooting the
    computer. Any suggestions? Thanks.
