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.

Did you check the ports beeing blocked by the firewall ? Perhaps it's blocking port 80.
