Do I need a firewall with the Alcatel ADSL modem? Can I disable it?
No, actually you don’t need the firewall. After converting your SpeedTouch Home modem to the Pro version, a firewall (built-in in the modem) is activated by default. You can check this by using software like Zone Alarm to see if attacks take place. You can also check this within the modem:
You can disable/enabled the firewall using:
Config firewalling=off config firewalling=on
