I’ve just watched AOwL’s wonderful Noob video & read Pandlouk’s hardening rules for wireless. And now I have questions!
One wireless notebook behind one router.
When creating the network zone, the wizard gives me two choices. Do I want to setup with Marvell Yukon 888 8036 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller or do I want to choose Local Network (might have said Local Area Network)? (Ques. 1)
On the Summary page of the FW it lists under System Info>Adapter: Marvell Yukon, Intel Pro/ Wireless, Bluetooth (not using Bluetooth at this time).
I want to create the most secure first two rules for when utilizing wireless.
Intel IP address ends in 1.3
Marvell Yukon IP address ends in 1.2
Which would I write to tighten the first two rules, 1.3 or 1.2? (Ques 2) Do I follow with the Submask numbers? (Ques 3)
I believe this is how they would look:
0 Allow IP out from IP [Any] to IP 192.168.1.2 WHERE IPPROTO IS ANY
1 Allow IP in from IP 192.168.1.2 to IP [ANY] WHERE IPPROTO IS ANY
Am I getting it? (Ques 4)
Thanks in advance for helping keep safe!
PS Just took a look at the Edit section for Network Control Rules. Could you tell me specific steps? (Ques 5) I think I’ll always be FW challenged!
Addendum: My old PC’s ethernet cable connects to the router right now, I’ve intentionally made it so there is no connection/communication between the two PCs & when setting the router I used the new PC. I just noticed on the old PC’s Comodo System Info>Adapter it lists Intel & its IP address ends in 1.4. Do you factor this additional information into the rules on both PCs? (Ques 6) Do the rulesets on both PCs match? (Ques 7)
I made its additional rules when I setup the router a few days ago (new PC had Norton suite at that time). It has no wireless abilities.
I want you to have all the details at your disposal.
