    Windows firewall rendering computers unusable


    I have four or five computers, different brands, all of which are running Windows 10 Pro, either 1803 or 1809. Windows Firewall is rendering these computers completely unusable when on WiFi. Some are desktops, some are laptops.


    When connected to -any- WiFi connection, either at work or at home, internet download speed as measured by speedtest - either the app or the website - is in the 0.0 (zero) to 0.02 Mbps range. Webpages can take 15 minutes to load, if they ever load at all.


    If I disable Windows firewall for the network type (domain at work, private at home) internet speeds return to normal. Turning firewall back on will return the speed back to next to nothing.


    All graphics drivers have been updated. The network drivers have all been updated. Every current patch published has been installed. SFC and DISM scans have been performed. DNS settings have been verified. Network performance monitor has been checked. The WiFi connections are working properly as other devices on the same networks do not experience the issue. The adapters have been completely uninstalled including the drivers deleted and reloaded. netsh reset has been attempted.


    Is there a fix for this issue?

  2. Good Antivirus + Firewall

    I would never put anything Norton on my computer.

    Nod32 is arguably the best antivirus. AVG is likely not as good, but it's free and at least pretty good.

    Firewalls, I'd put Comodo and whatever "Tiny Personal Firewall" is named nowadays on your short list. I think Kerio might have sold it now and it's named something else. Otherwise, just put Comodo on your short list. I think the current version's ease of use has taken a step backwards, seems a bit counter-intuitive when trying to do certain things with it, but overall it does a good job and the price is right.

  3. Best free AV and firewall

    Can Windows Firewall block outgoing connections yet? If not, it's one step above useless.

    Look into Online Armor for a free firewall.
