    Guide to fully disable Speedtouch 585 firewall

    ok... i decided to write this up to help other Speedtouch 585 users who wants to fully disable the firewall on the modem. As the firewall is blocking several connections even after u do port forwarding and programs like BT and even some games are affected. Do this at ur own risk, i will not be resposible for any damages caused to ur modem and PC.

    Firstly, if u read the manual for ST585, it stated that firewall is not fully disabled when u set the security level of the firewall to disabled using the web interface.
    Quote Originally Posted by ��

It means all traffic coming in on one interface and going out on another is allowed, but access to the embedded services of the SpeedTouch™ (as telnet, web interface,...) is only allowed for clients residing on the LAN side, so the SpeedTouch™ itself stays protected.
    So the only matter to fully disable the firewall is to do it through Telnet.
    Follow these few steps:
    1.) Go into Command Prompt (Start > Run > Type in "cmd" & hit the enter key)
    2.)At the Command Prompt, type in: "telnet speedtouch.lan<--(gateway of your router. Alternatively, u can also use 'dsldevice.lan' or the gateway address)"
    3.)Next, you will be prompted to enter your user name and password. Make sure u have administrator power for your account.
    4.)Next, type: "firewall"
    5.)follow by: "config state=disabled"
    6.)type: "saveall" to save all of ur settings.
    7.)Finally: "exit" to log out


    Now, ur firewall is fully disabled. This time when u go back into ur router config through the web browser, u will notice that the firewall security status changes into: -


    Dun worry about it too much. Now go check the event log and u will notice that the event logging doesn't show any address/ports being blocked by firewall anymore.

    hehe... cheers ^^

    it depends on ur PC actually... if ur system dun have any firewall, antivirus and not updated with latest windows security patch than u will definately be a victim of viruses. actually all those normal ethernet modem doesnt have firewall, so by disabling this NAT modem firewall, its actually like those normal ethernet modem.

    As for hackers, basically noone will care to hack ur PC. And if some pro hackers really wanna hack some PC, no matter how good ur firewall and network security is, they still have a way of hacking it thru. =)
