I have a Belkin wireless set up and it is working fine. No problems with downloads. However, when I try to post on this website, it just keeps going and going then nothing. I am guessing it has something to do with the firewall the Belkin system has built in. I called Belkin and they said there is some sort on number for each website that if I enter it in the firewall everything will work fine. my question is, Is this correct? If so, where do I find or get the number I need to enter? The only way I was able to post this was to switch over to my dial-up connection and any help would be greatly appreciated. I have been a member for a few months but do not post alot because of this problem. Thanks:thumbup

Yes, I can get on the site just fine with my highspeed connection. However, I can not get a post or reply to go through with my highspeed. In order for me to reply to you now, I had to disconnect from my highspeed and then use my dial-up just to post this message.

Hmm...I'm not understanding this explaination at all. By default the firewall shouldn't be blocking you from going anywhere. It will however block stuff comming in that wasn't requested by an application on your PC (i.e. Internet Explorer).

Suggestions on how to fix:

First thing I would try is to connect directly to your cable/dsl modem bypassing the wireless. That way you knwo for sure it's the wireless.

Clear your router settings back to default. There is usually some type of button you have to hold down while it's unplugged or something (RTFM).

Report back with your results.

The only thing I can think of would be if it is blocking something like java, activex, etc. But seeing as how this site is php scripted, I wouldn't know why a router/firewall would block posting to it.
