I logged on to my modem but did not see anything that would give the error.

I turned off the firewall and now it works. Dont like having my firewall off though. Will read your post on firewalls in depth. Is there a mention on how to create an exception on a firewall?

The firewall is a cake.

The cake is a lie. Sorry but all routers with NAT have a natural firewall but as you are selling these to consumers you can get a few more sales by adding another firewall that blocks communication inside your LAN.

So by design you had a firewall from the WAN to LAN and the extra firewall between the PCs on the LAN is for what reason?

Nod to Portal. The cake is a lie.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
