Cool BIG annoying problem... Help please.

When I want to turn on my firewall while not connected to the internet it turns on fine, but when I connect to the internet while it's dialing, the connection icon refreshes itself and resets it's firewall status to no firewall...

Whats it this? Any suggestions how to turn it on?

Thanks.

If Yours Using The Windows Firewall I Suggest That You Get Something Different. Windows firewall protects you ok but if your having problems with it i would get a different one. Zone Alarm Had a free one not sure if they still do but it was good. Im Guessing your on dialup u really do not need that much protection seeing that ur ip address changes everytime u disconnect..



^_^ Thats My 2 Cents

LOL, Buckwheat is your nickname isn't it? You just forgot to type the "H" in it, or something, because as far as I know there has to be an "H" in there, LOL...
