Q:

How do you turn off a Netgear router firewall?

A:

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

  • Q:

    Why is a firewall necessary?

    A:

    A firewall is necessary because it blocks unauthorized access to private networks, safeguarding them from hackers, viruses and worms. A firewall works by monitoring all messages entering and leaving the intranet and restricting those that do not meet security data. A firewall can take the form of hardware, software or a combination of both. Some of the most common forms are packet filtering, circuit-level gateway implementation and web application firewalls.
