Welcome to the forums, Rayster.  Please see this tutorial
http://forums.comodo.com/frequently_asked_questions_faq_for_comodo_firewall/tutorials_a_compiled_resource-t6167.0.html;msg45542#msg45542

There is a link there, next to the author's name, which will link to the original thread it is copied from.

No luck with the tutorials. I follow all the steps and repeat it all over again many times.

The only solution I try is turning it off or Allow All.

Hi Rayster,

For Wii and Nitendo DS you will have to disable Network Monitor while playing. The problem is that they do not use specific ports and is impossible to configure correctly the network monitor.

ps. after finished palying turn it on again. ;)

OK, all you gurus out there.... I have been trying to figure this and am at the point of uninstalling Comodo. I can connect to my router when I turn Comodo off and stay connected after I turn Comodo back on but not when Comodo is on?

I need your help. Its simple, its basic but don't know what am I overlooking?

 My router IP is 192.168.1.1 a Linksys 300N running latest firmware. Starting ip address of 192.168.1.2 with a subnet mask of .248.

Settings on Comodo firewall are zone name "HomeWirelessNetwork" start address 192.168.1.0 to .7. Trusted zone is the same name selected from the drop down box and the ip addresses it gives are correct also using the default Any to any setting.

Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?
Thanks,
lev.

laevanay,

You have defined a zone, but have you set that as Trusted (using Security/Tasks) so that it creates two rules at the top of Network Monitor?  If these two rules are not present,  the zone is not being applied.  You should have in position Rule ID 0 this rule:  Allow IP Out from Any to Zone where IP Detail is Any.  In position Rule ID 1 you should have Allow IP In from Zone to Any where IP Detail is Any.

If those two rules are in place, have you rebooted since you did so?  If not, please do.

If it's still not working, temporarily set CFP Security Level to Allow All for testing purposes only.  Try to access your LAN.  If it fails, it is not CFP blocking you.  In that case it will probably be the residual traces of your previous firewall causing a conflict.

If Allow All enables your LAN connection, then CFP is blocking something somehow.  The Logs will hold the clues.  Open Activity/Logs, right-click any entry and select "Clear all logs."  Then try to access your LAN (with Security Level returned to Custom), with no other programs running.  Once it fails, go back to the logs, and look at the very bottom entry (as this will be the oldest); that is where we will need to start.

Am I glad to have found this forum!

I have a router and two laptops (the 2 laptops don't have to talk to each other; in fact I'd rather they didn't). My router has the IP 192.168.0.49 (I thought a random IP would somehow make it more secure?), so what should my IP subnet be if I only need two IP addresses? (currently it's set to 255.255.255.0) Should I leave "Use router as DHCP server" checked? (currently: checked with starting IP 192.168.0.52 and ending 192.168.0.55).

On my Comodo firewall I've set my networked zones to the router's IP address 192.168.0.49; is this correct? I see you can set it to a MAC address as well; does it make any difference in terms of security? Is one more secure than the other?

Thanks for your help!
