    I went with KIS for my laptop. Are there any special settings I need to make when logging on a public wi-fi? At home I have a hardware firewall/high speed modem. It would be nice if I could find some settings that will change (if needed) automatically when I try to connect to wi-fi. Anyone know?

    thanks

    Make sure file sharing is off. Various firewalls and systems handle this differently, but the basic move is to treat the network at home as private and the ones away as public.

    Just make sure that you set the public network to untrusted and enable stealth.
