since i installed my wireless router i have noticed i havent received any hits on my firewall log (mcafee).does this mean i can do without my mcafee firewall as the router seems to be taking care of business for me?
That’s interesting woodchip that you don’t use a firewall other than your routers Until recently I had an awful lot of problems with my network basically could could not display most pages, (Panda anti virus and firewall and cable and wireless router) and since uninstalling the lot in favour of free Avast and Zone Alarm all BT products have not had a problem, it makes me wonder after you saying this woodchip if we maybe are a bit paranoid in the way of security I for one would trust your word that this procedure is safe.
I usually post in the imperative but it is up to the OP as to whether to follow my 'instructions'.
Anyway, I have a software firewall, also paid for, though ZA is free and probably just as good. I just happen to like McAfee products and am not strapped for cash (nor am I minted - ask Mrs VoG but that's another discussion!).
