I am finding it quite difficult to install a firewall without it disabling my wireless internet. Please someone give me some suggestions if any to avoid this

Hello, I am not sure if this is the same in outpost, with mcafee if the security settings are set to high the INTERNET is blocked.
To fix this you simply set the security to medium.
Lets try this first, I want you to do a loopback ping, here is how.
  • turn your fire wall off
  • click the start menu
  • select "run"
  • type in "cmd" and press enter
  • when the command prompt window opens type"ping 127.0.0.1
Please let me know if the ping was successful, or failed (if the ping fails please copy/paste any error messeges in a reply)

Hi Elysia,

I haven't even heard of this firewall, but I did find it on Google.

I would imagine you just have to set a rule to allow for your wireless to work properly.
You should have a "rules" area where you can find your wireless or internet connection and "allow" it.
