I first setup her wireless encryption (except for addition of an admin password, it was completely wide open, broadcasting the SSID w/o any WEP or WPA).
I then made sure SystemWorks 2005 was up to date. For good measure I installed and ran AdAware SE. I also pulled a Hijack This log (posted in the other forum).
I had to disable a firewall/encryption (?) program called Ghost Surf so she could use Internet Explorer (it was also blocking AdAware SE updates and Outlook Express), even on the lightest setting.
I poked around the D-Link control panel for firewall settings or info, but didn't immediately find any. My own Linksys WAP/router includes a firewall, so I assumed the D-Link would also. True? I ran out of time before I could review the manual in detail.
Would ZoneAlarm be a wise addition to her set up? Can anyone comment on the D-link router (is the firewall enabled by default?) I had hoped to run some tests via broadbandreports.com but time was short.
Any advice will be appreciated.
