If you have a web address to enter the router settings it is the same thing.

e.g. 192.168.1.1

Norton Safe Web, from Symantec - Safe Websites | Norton Safe Web Lite

Check it out.

unfortunately norton safe web lite is incompatible with ff 9.0.1
i suspect it will be updated soon.
Looks like Norton is working on replacing it with a new toolbar.

""Starting from "outside" enable the Router firewall.

Another way to get there is by typing the router IP address in your web browser.""

Thanks profdlp and Phone Man
