One pc on wired router and three laptops with wireless connections. All running Win7 Ultimate and McAfee Total Protection.
Adding new PC - wired - with McAfee installed and firewall on, can ping other pc's and laptops on teh network and can ping websites, but all internet connections time out (IE9 and Firefox).
If I turn teh McAfee firewall off then internet connections are fine.
Oddly, one of the laptops is also new, with same os and McAfee product - but on that one, firewall is left on and internet connection is fine.
This would suggest the default settings in McAfee firewall are preventing the internet browsers from working. In firewall settings "Internet Connections for Programs", both Firefox and IE are specified with full access.
Any thoughts? Anyone have the same issues?
(Is it anything to do with "Ports and System Services")
Thanks in advance.
Haveyou made any system/McAfee changes recently?
Please let me know the version of McAfee Personal Firewall installed on your computer ( McAfee >> Navigation >> About ).
I have made no changes - it is a new install on a new Win 7 Ultimate PC.
Win firewall is disabled.
Installed McAfee Total Protection from McAfee website (latest version - not sure of numbers etc as not at home now).
Thinking out loud, would choice of home or public network affect the firewall settings?
Can you please change network connection to Home as Firewall may block when we select the connection as public...
Having the same issue. Wireless connections are fine, wired connection is being blocked. Have restored to default with no change, the network connection is set at home. I have attempted both Chrome and IE with the same results.
Any ideas at all?
