Dean, Can you step back a minute and try to explain more clearly why you think you are being hacked and why you think the only firewall that can prevent it is an out of date version of Tiny? We're having a little trouble understanding, which is why you are getting the reactions you are. It really doesn't seem to make sense. First you said "your ISP can flash your BIOS when you first dialup". How? Making a network connection is not enough to flash a BIOS. A program must run locally to do that. Then you said that when you tried LnS, "... what a mistake the ISP idiots flahed my bios right away and somehow disabled my drive to access the Internet!!!" Exactly what type of malware protection are you running? Any anti-virus and anti-trojan software? Could your system simply have been infected with a common malicious virus that caused you problems? You see, if someone could write some program into a BIOS to take control of a PC's network connection, such that all the newer firewalls can't block it, then I can assure you, old Tiny won't block it either. A better explanation might make this clearer for everyone otherwise this thread is going no where, and no one will benefit.
