Of course! I completely forgot about using my http://192.etc address in Explorer which shows my complete Belkin setup.

I will check out your link later and see if I can improve my security.

Many thanks for your help

Yeah, I imagine there are a lot more settings there than what the setup software shows or goes though. On my D-Link you can save your configuration to a file and save it to your PC. Its handy if you want to try some things, but mess it up and have to reset it to defaults because you locked yourself out somehow. Then instead of starting over from scratch you just import the file and its all back the way it was before you started. That reminds me, I should go and make a new backup config file.

Installation took around 15 mins. It rebooted the pc automatically after installation. This is the main GUI. Neat and simple. It has more than 10 processes running. :shock: BTW, its updating now. While quick scan, its eating up around 50-60 MB RAM. That's huge IMO.
