I'm not exactly a networking expert and am currently having some issues with my new sitecom router (firmware is upgraded to the latest version)
When NAT is enabled on my router and the router firewall is on
... when I use the shieldsup! utility GRC is providing, it tells me all ports are stealth. ....when I turn my firewall off, all ports are closed.
However, with my firewall up, i'm having trouble using some sites, for instance just surfing to thepiratebay.org.
Is NAT protecting me sufficiently? I'm not exactly keen on turning my firewall off, but I would think i'd be allowed to surf any website.
Thanx in advance, rinze
