internet works only when firewall is set to "no firewall"
right what the title says. maybe it's a n00b thing but i got an advice to check if it wasn't set to high. ok, i checked it and it was set "high" so i changed it into "standard" mode. the thing is, i can still access internet ONLY if the firewall is set to "no firewall".
if you believe the htread belong to other category, feel free to move it.
