- Disabling the firewall on a Windows Vista computer
Windows Vista has a built-in firewall that provides security by limiting or preventing access to your computer from the Internet. Sometimes, software firewalls like the one included in Windows Vista conflicts with the built-in hardware firewall in Linksys routers. In such cases, we have to disable the built-in firewall in Windows Vista.
Under Programs, select Windows Firewall.
NOTE: If the User Account Control window appears, click Continue.
When the Windows Firewall window appears, click Turn Windows Firewall on or off.
When the Windows Firewall Settings window appears, select Off then click OK.
