Disable a Netgear router's firewall by logging into the router and creating new rules for the inbound and outbound services. It is generally a bad idea to change the settings.
Open a browser and type in the router's default address. Login with the default username and password, which are "admin" and "password," respectively. Once logged in, click on "Security," then "Rules." Create a new inbound services rule labeled "Any" and click the setting to "Allow Always." Move this new rule to the top of the list and make sure it is enabled. The Netgear router firewall is now disabled and accessible to anyone on the Internet
