NVG510 Question.

Hello, I switched to U-verse not long ago and I have a NVG510. I have a few programs that I want to block in the firewall so they cant check for updates and whatnot. I looked around in the firewall settings and dont see how to do this(I'm not very good at this type of thing). Any help would be much appreciated!

Can't you just change the settings in the programs to "not" check for updates ? Why even bother w/ a firewall for that ?

Also not to confuse U-verse with all DSL by AT&T. This modem you have is also only generally given to IPDSL - at least in the Midwest/Ameritech region.

Not all programs have that setting, also I have a game that tries to update to patch that I dont want. Would be nice to know how to block things.
