Update or Router?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?SnVzdGluODg=?=, Feb 1, 2005.

  1. I have been using online checking for about 3 years and have been using my
    router and RoadRunner cable internet for about a year. Everything has worked
    fine until two weeks ago when the secure part of the website wouldn't open.
    All of this is leading me to believe it is a new upgrade from Microsoft
    blocking something in my router but I am uncertain.

    Should I contact the online checking company to see what ports they use then
    contact my ISP to see if that port is being blocked by anything?

  2. Actually, just tell your firewall to allow secure connections and you wont
    have to worry about it again.

    Hi
    Windows can not make changes or block your Router.
    Try to switch off Windows Firewall when you are using the checking service
    and see if it helps.
    Do not forget to switch On when you are done.
