    Firewall Setting
    What should I have my firewall setting at. Is setting is to allow only essential programs the best?

    I am using my Macbook on my home network with WEP security.

    Do you think the firewall on my linksys router is enough?

    15" 2.8ghz MBP6,2(4gb) | 20" iMac | 1.8 & 2.0 Mini(4gb) | iPhone4 | iPad-4Wifi
    I am also interested in Firewall settings.

    I use 10.5. I am using my MBP on my home WPA secured WIFI network, about 50% of the time. The other 50% is spent on a WEP, public network.

    I use .mac and am trying to get "back to mac" working. Should I also turn off the firewall?
