I can't get on most websites because my parents put a "Netgear Firewall" up...I've logged onto their desktops (they are the computer administrators) and searched the control panel but all I see is Windows Firewall settings, no Netgear. I think I am looking in the wrong place. Can anyone tell me where to go to change the Firewall settings, or just disable the whole thing? :tazz: Any advice would be appreciated :)

most likely it would be under the programs folder in your start menu. It could also be in your task tray as well.

If you have a Netgear router, its probably in there, the best form of firewall available - hardware level.

But having said that, your parents have obviously set it up for a reason so why not take it up with them? And what websites are you trying to get onto?

Yea I have a Netgear router.

Hmmm....well they blocked me from myspace (parents totally over-react about that website!) but I'm not gonna freak out about that, it just kinda pisses me off because that's the only way I could talk to a lot of people. But they also blocked some music sites and band websites. I guess I could talk to them about it but they are kind of mad at me so I doubt they will take it off.

But are you saying that there is no way to take it off by myself? Is talking to them the only way to get it off?

Howdy:

Sorry, but we are not in the habit of helping someone circumvent restrictions placed on their system ..

If you want access to these sites, then talk to the "powers that be" (your parents) and have them remove it..
