Router/Modem Without Firewall

  Yo Ho 02:59 25 Mar 2006

Can someone give me a make & model of a 4port router, preferably, or a 4port modem/router without inbuilt firewall. Doesn't need to be wireless, but doesn't really matter. I have a wired setup, and I'm using a D-Link ADSL-300T modem.

Maybe I'm missing something here, but why not just use the router with the firewall disabled?

I have a Netgear DG834GT router, and seemingly firewall cannot be disabled. If that were the case, t'would be great. I had the guy from customer support open ports, and set it for me, but the live feed will still not feed back to me, and there's no way round that. I also Have Zoom ADSLX5 router, but the same problem there.
It works fine through a standard modem without firewall, but I loose my web sharing capabilities.
All I want is a router with no firewall. Surely someone must make one, or as you suggest, one in which the firewall can be disabled.

I have never yet seen/worked on a router that has no firewall, not that such a thing doesn't exist. It might.

Apart from Netgear, I have never seen or worked with a router whose firewall cannot be disabled completely. Belkin, 3Com, D-Link, etc. You can probably take your pick from all the main rivals to Netgear, though the first two are my firm favourites.

Hey m8. You have brought much happiness to me. Any ideas on the Zoom X5, and out of your favs, could you suggest a model please.
Much appreciated.
