Hi all, On the firewall screen it says
When i try to edit this setting it says click on a radio button, the problem is their isnt one!
In the last week my internet has stopped and started randomlly also cannot download from my p2p. Could anyone give advice please as I am still waiting for a reply from sky technical support.
Also I have "Sky Max" yet when first installed it showed line as 8mb, now it is 6mb. We are beginning to regret signing up with Sky Broadband as it has been one problem after another. Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forum
That's the default rule for the firewall. There is no radio button.
I think maybe you are misunderstanding what this rule means/how computers communicate across a network (e.g. internet). Putting this in very simple terms, this rule doesn't stop all inbound connections - it stops all uninvited inbound connections - which is exactly what you want to happen. Should there be something you want to be allowed to connect uninvited (e.g. another P2P connection) then you simply add rules to the firewall settings to allow this. They sit above the default rule. In all other cases where the connection is invited by an application on your PC, the router knows this and allows it.
You will find a number of very useful posts on this forum, many have been made "sticky". Please take a while to read them. You'll find instructions on how to set up firewall rules for common P2P applications and literally hundreds of posts on connection issues.
