While I see a bunch of posts about this, none of these seem to solve my problem.
As many have already expressed, my McAfee Firewall has blocked my internet connection. While it says I am connected to my wireless network at home, it says "No Internet Connection" and won't allow me to browse any web pages.
I attempted to change the settings on my Firewall after this occured, but McAfee wouldn't allow me to go into the Firewall settings on my computer- it literally just wouldn't load everytime I would click on Firewall settings. On my phone, I saw tips to uninstall the program. I uninstalled McAfee last week because of this, yet still, everytime I run a diagnosis of why I can't connect to my wireless network, it says that McAfee Firewall is still blocking my connection. How could this be possible if I've uninstalled? I've seen on other tips that I can download and run a McAfee Remover program, yet this proves to be an issue when I can't get any connection to the internet to do this. I've even gone online to my McAfee account and removed my PC from being protected to see if this would solve an issue, but my internet still will not connect due to McAfee Firewall. At this point I have exhausted all options that I've seen out there, such as restarting in safe mode, etc. I can't do much when my internet connection is still being blocked.
Remedies and solutions anyone?
Thanks for the help.
It shouldn't be even saying that if you uninstalled. Did you run the MCPR cleanup tool (listed under Useful Links at the top of this page)?
Normally the firewall would allow full permission to whatever browser you are using, unless you were using non-standard settings. Those settings would be under SecurityCentewr > Web and Email Protection > Firewall > Internet Connections for Programs
However you can't alter settings unless you are signed in as an Administrator-level user.
Technical Support is a free phone call away if you need them, also listed under Useful Links at the top of this page.
I haven't run the cleanup, which may be the fix to regaining an internet connection, but I am unable to download the program because I don't have the internet connection...And I obviously can't access any of the McAfee setting any longer because it was uninstalled, and I am unable to reinstall because, you guessed it, I have no internet connection! It's really a vicious circle.
How are you talking to me? Have you tried repairing the internet connection in Windows control panel or right-clicking the network icon by the clock, "Diagnose and Repair"?
I am on my work computer, my laptop is the one which isn't working.
I have, and when I do that is where it tells me that McAfee Firewall is blocking my connection and I need to adjust its settings.
If you need the MCPR Tool , please click on the below link and download it to run on the affected machine. Thanks,
Yes I was just going to suggest downloading and saving it to a removable flash drive or similar.
