    Hope i helped
    The problem is that MAC ID's can be spoofed. Nothing to stop someone from changing the MAC ID on that XP machine. See my reply about using the machine for other things.

    MAC ID blocking is false security, just like hiding the SSID. Only way to keep computers from going online outside of the network, is to not connect a Ethernet cord, or use a Domain with Radius.

    Really I think that with the OP. Re-purposing the machine for something else, or installing Windows 7 if it has at least 2GB of RAM and a decent CPU, it should still give out a few more years until the motherboard dies.

    Hi topgundcp,
    The router is a Netgear ProSafe VPN Firewall FVS318v3

    Wullail,

    How do I find out?

    What I show in post #5, should that not take care of it?

    Thanks
    Sven

    That is a very old unit. A better one with better management of computers, time they can get online, etc., would be the TP-Link TL-R600VPN. You can get it from Newegg.com for $62. I use it and it is a very robust unit. The FVS318v3, only has a 11.8 mbps WAN to LAN throughput.

    I had one that I was testing for a customer around four years ago. We ended up finding that it would not do what they wanted, so sent it back.

    Hi broe23,
    Well, the unit may be old, but it does the job just fine.
    no one is complaining about the speed, and we all get to do what we need.
    the only problem I have is blocking this one computer from getting on line.
    So the question remains: looking at post #5, what am I doing wrong?
    any one knows?

    Your LAN & WAN Users is what you are doing wrong. The LAN User is the IP of the Computer, along with its MAC Address of the Network adapter. Outbound services is for Firewall rules. I really suggest you download a copy of the book, on how to do what you are wanting to do with that antique.

    The other problem is that since it is EOL Equipment (End Of Life). It is open to outsiders who wish to get into the router, can since Netgear no longer updates or supports the equipment.

    This is the manual for that almost 10 year old router. http://kbserver.netgear.com/pdf/fvs318v3_manual.pdf

    May I ask what is the Model of your NETGEAR Router ?
    You cannot uninstall the IE, it is an integral part of the OS. You can only disable it.
