k, wel ever since my father put dsl in the house andon the network, ive been unable to direct connect on aim, and share files on msn or yahoo. Plus, my download programs wont connect to the internet. All i have is the windows firewall (to my knowledge) and McAfee virus protection (no firewall softwere). Now, i disconnected my windows firewall and when i go to Network Connections, it doenst say firewalled, but the problem is still goin on. For instnace, whe na friend invites me to webcam on yahoo is says "A firewall has been detected on your copmuter. you cannot use yahoo webcam a firewall" or something close to that, and i disconnecte dmy windows firewall and got the same message. What the fuck, how do i find out if im running another firewall i dont know about AND/OR how would i go about changing some settings ont he network comp to fix this. thanks.
