Firewall settings for Home network with Wifi connection

Recommended Posts

When I clock on Firewall status . there is a red bar on the icon . Id like to know with simple language if there is is anything I should change? On the interface option one is trusted , the other is active. Are these the default settings?

The firewall status icon in system tray shows how much network activity is occurring in real-time. The red bar indicates the level of traffic leaving your computer (outgoing), and the green bar indicates the level of traffic entering your computer (incoming). For example, when you go to a website you will see a blip of "red" activity as the data is requested, followed by some sustained "green" activity as the data is downloaded.

Yes :) Since you have a wireless internet connection, you will want to take the tick out of the Trusted box. You can read more about choosing the most appropriate setting for your situation here http://www.emsisoft.com/en/info/oa/HomeOffice.html
