Intermitent Firewalling

Has anyone else come across this? It used to be that I was never firewalled. Then about a year ago, I was suddenly firewalled. This lasted about eleven months. As sudden as it appeared, the firewall disappeared. It was like that for two weeks, then the firewall was back for another two weeks, to disappear yesterday?

As Alice said, "Curiouser and curiouser."

Re: Intermitent Firewalling

I occasionally will suddenly show up as firewalled (and yeah, embarrassing to have *my* name listed as firewalled on a torrent here!) - no tweaking on my computer will change it. I'm firewalled on canyouseeme and yet I look at the router and the ports are open (supposedly). Then I restart the router and all is fine again. So, I blame it on the router.

Yep. Imagine my surprise the first time this happened!

I unplug it, count to 30, and plug it back in again.

And it's not working? I suppose you could reboot your computer at the same time.

Re: Intermitent Firewalling

what works for me is:

1. unplug modem
2. unplug router
3. turn off pc
4. power up modem, wait for boot up to finish
5. power up router, wait for boot up
6. power up PC

I thought that was the whole idea (I mean not being firewalled).

Yes, that is the idea. It is just strange, almost like the tide going in and out.
