Your TG589 router comes with an integrated firewall that helps you protect your network from attacks from the internet. This firewall has a number of predefined levels to allow you to adjust the firewall to your needs.
The default mode is normal. In normal mode, the firewall will:
- allow all outbound connections and will silently drop all unknown incoming connections
- protect your TG589 router and local network against intrusions
The Firewall card displays current firewall level used.
