    Windows Firewall actively blocking DHCP traffic from Android WiFi tethering

    Yet again windows firewall is blocking essential stuff without ever giving you a notice, making you disable it and be less secure.

    This time it is the Wifi network of my Android device.

    Please help me dear microsoft locate where did I ever configure that the dhcp traffic should be blocked?!

    I diagnosed it as the problem cause when its on and I'm trying to connect, the wifi interface doesn't get assigned an IP, assigning it the correct IP and default gateway manually, overrides this problem but it is completely nonviable for wifi adapter where
    your default gateway's address can change...

    After disabling firewall, connecting and re-enabling I can finally work, but this is unacceptable.

    Microsoft fix your firewall.

    edit - sorry for the weird punctuation, I dunno what is up with this editor...

    Windows Firewall blocking websites

    I have blocked IP addresses, e.g. 255.255.255.255, not URLs, e.g. somewebsite.co m.

    As far as unblocking, look at your Windows Firewall rules. Do you see anything that is blocked? If you do, click on the Scope tab and see what is listed there.

    Windows Firewall blocking websites

    Windows Firewall can't block specific websites, only port numbers (HTTP uses 80 or 8080). More likely, Windows Firewall is blocking the Windows Update Service or some other critical update application and/or port number that prevents updates from happening.

    As twilyth pointed out, this is abnormal and likely caused by some form of malware. If you even found a the offending rule in Windows Firewall, the malware will likely put it back to the way it was within seconds.

    Does http://download.microsoft.com open for you? It should redirect a few times and end up at: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/default.aspx

    Have you tried to ping download.microsoft.com? I did it a few times so you should be able to get a response off it.
