Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

I recommend disabling the Windows firewall and using something like Comodo Internet Security.

Here's how to disable the firewall:


To disable Windows Firewall, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, click Run, type Firewall.cpl, and then click OK.
  2. On the General tab, click Off
  3. Click OK.

Can you go to device manager. Click on Start and then right click on My computer. Click on Properties. This will bring up system properties. Click on the hardware tab and click on the Device Manager. In here look under network adapters and tell me if you wireless card is listed if it is, tell me if there is any red x's, yellow questions mark or a yellow exclamation mark. Let me know.

my wireless card is not listed.
Expert:  Daniel replied 4 years ago.
Is your wireless card internal or in external, meaning do you have to insert the wireless card or is it built into your computer. If you have to put it in your computer then give me the make and model, if you don't have to insert it then give me the make and model of your computer.
