Comodo with Verizon wireless modem on USB

Hi all,

I just signed up with Verizon mobile broadband, which gives you a broadband modem that plugs into a USB port. I’m running XP. My question is, does the Windows firewall apply to that connection, and does Comodo? I’m using CIS 3.5.xxx.whatever.

Under Windows Control Panel > Network Connections, installing Verizon (software + hardware) adds two entries:

  1. type=“dial-up”, called Verizon Wireless - VZAccess
  2. type=“LAN or High-Speed Internet”, called Local Area Connection 2

Not really sure how secure I am with this. Any ideas?

Thanks.
