    i have zonealarm with all the ips imported, and a ihave a us robotics router with the bt and klite and shareaza ports opened. do u think i should keep my firewall running? cuz i've noticed since install, i've only had bout 900 blocks (with router installed). b4 my router was installed, it had over 20000 blocks in the same amount of time. so my router isn't doing as much as b4. should i still keep it running? i'm thinking since it's got ips imported, it'll target those shitheads, while the router doesn't block those ips specifically. any suggestions?

    of course it's gonna go faster

    everytime u reqest a connection ur firewall checks it against the blocklist

    my suggestion to u: get rid of the blocklist and keep the firewall on

    if they r gonna catch u they dont need to be on the blocklist to do it

    Keep it on...
    I have zone alarm too (PRO is better)
    More configurations for it not to slow down...

    I have a router + Firewall...

    i have another q. b4 i installed my router, my speed according to bandwidthplace.com was 2.6megabits. now after my router is installed it's 1.5 megabits/s. wtf!!

    I am having the same loss of speed from using my router as Abu is having.... what programs do you suggest I use to help get back my lost bandwith??

    I am using KaNat with Kazaalite which has helped me get more sources but that program doesn't increase the speed...... any help would be greatly appreciated! :helpsmile:


    PS- I too have thought of abandoning my router and sticking only with my copy of Zone Alarm Pro, but I know that is a mistake....

    Did you also port-forward KL++'s ip port from the router to your computer on both TCP and UDP? Otherwise, using KaNAT alone won't help.

    If Kazaa/KL++ doesn't have unfettered access through BOTH your router and firewall, you are "firewalled" on Kazaa/KL++ and can ONLY download from non-firewalled users.
