Hi all, this is my first post here in which i hope i am able to get the issue my ESET Smart Security 5 software is having allowing access to the internet. I am running ESET on my Windows 7- 64 bit platform. Issues with connectivity and cannot get access to the internet with the ESET firewall on. I have followed the directions on the ESET knowledge base in going through the Advance personal firewall setup and changing the personal firewall setting to interactive also the Rules and Zones section and selecting home Allow sharing as well as checking all the boxes under IDS and Advanced option's allowed services. Pressed ok and restarted my PC to find i still cannot gain connectivity. I am running a Belkin Modem router through cable and it seems the firewall is blocking my modem's access to the internet. There seems to be the same IP address popping up in the alert stating the firewall has blocked its access which i believe to be my modem. Can someone offer the ray of light needed at this time t resolve this problem please. Thank you all who read and offer advice.
