Firewall card

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

Firewall card

The Firewall card displays current firewall level used.

Viewing additional settings

Select Firewall. The Firewall page appears and allows you to:

  • change the firewall level
  • enable or disable response to internet pings
