Hello I have a speedstream 2602 two port router. When I am connected to the router I am unable to use the direct connect function with aol instant messanger. It says I am behind a firewall even though the firewall is disabled. Is there a way to correct this problem with AIM. Thanks

It's not the "firewall" in the router that's blocking them, it's the NAT address translation. I don't know what ports AIM uses, but it's possible to configure pass-thru ports for a specific machine on the router. I don't know your router, but it's normally pretty simple.
