Hope I can explain this in a way that makes sense, I ran the following test http://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?rh1dkyd2 using my laptop that has a trial version of Norton on it. My computer did not pass as apparently it did react to the PING requests. Running the test using my old laptop and with F-Secure my computer passes everytime, should I be concerned by this and should I consider changing to another anti-virus programme. It could be interesting if other users/forum members run the test and post results. For my machine all ports were in 'stealth' mode

Once I receive my wlan router which has a built in firewall I will run the test again, was just curious as to why using F-Secure (antivirus + firewall) my computer passed and when using Norton (antivirus + firewall) my computer failed.

Kind of hijacking my own thread, is that possible?:dontknow: How difficult is it to set up the router correctly. I thought of having a go myself as I have set up ADSL connectins for friends easily enough. Reading the instructions http://www.telewell.fi/english/manuals/tw-ea510_versio2_manual.pdf for the router that I should be getting it seems to be a slightly more complicated process, also am not the most patient of people, sometimes. Can have it installed for 50€ and may well do it just to save myself some hassle. Suggestions and ideas most welcome!
