      D-Link 2640S and firewall

      Hi

      I have just started with Sky*broadband and have a question about the D-link router: does it have an internal firewall? I previously had a netgear which had its own firewall and when tested on Shieldsup pasted the stealth test. With the D-link it says I am able to be pinged. I am using PClinuxOS and have set the firewall to block ping, but shields up is still saying I am being pinged. Anyone got anyideas?

      Your router is being pinged. You will find a setting, it will be in the WAN setup section, for Respond to ping, untick it.
