-Is this a "no Proxy" security affect setting on my home network?

I have established that the the unique proxy setting that makes my computer works best is the "no proxy setting. I read, however, that this setting could leave my computer open to hacking and other intrusions. I'm on a home network with no other users. My ISP is Comcast. I have not run any software protection protection other than what offers Windows and everything that gives a router. Is it safe set the proxy server offers 'no proxy '. Even if I have Internet high flow, I can't access most of the sites up to 30 seconds, and sometimes I just get wait times. When I changed the setting to 'no proxy', I was able to connect to the lightening quick sites. I always thought it was Comcast, but it seems that it is this particular parameter which is the culprit. However, if the "no proxy setting' endangers my safety, I'll change it to another setting.

    Hello

    This"the desktop computer is connected to the internet and a wireless modem" , is not clear.

    To have a coherent network, the Modem is connected to the network, the router must be connected next Modem WAN, and the wire from the computer or the wireless must be connected to the router.

  • Set up a home network on a Vista computer. Added my XP computer on the network. I can go on the internet but the signal strength is 'very low' 98% of the time.

    I used a d-link WBR-1310 Wireless G router to set up the network on my Vista computer.  On my XP computer, I used an adapter G USB 2.0 Wireless d-link WUA-1340.  Both computers are single room apart and most of the time, the doors are open, so there is no major obstacle to interfere with the signal.  This is my first experience on the implementation of a network and I must admit I was a little unsure of myself.  I don't know if I have some incorrect settings or if the problem may be something else.  It is a WEP secure network but I don't think that's the problem.  My XP computer on the network automatically signs as soon as it starts.  I am trying to download the LLTP from Microsoft on my XP machine, but I don't know if this could be the problem.  I've been struggling with this problem for almost 4 weeks and I'm getting very frustrated.

    PLEASE, I WELCOME ANYONE WITH AN IDEA OF WHAT I HAVE DONE WRONG, TO ANSWER!

    I'm sorry, but I read your post and I do not understand what the problem is you want to solve.  Is something that does not properly?  If so, please give us the details: what you're trying to do, what happens when you do that, the text of the error messages, etc.

    It is said that there is something not working only not with the driver

    You probably need to install some network drivers for your wireless card.

    Download drivers

    Visit the manufacturer's Web site and select your computer model (this is usually done in the Support section). You should be able to download drivers for your model. Download the driver (s) and follow the instructions to install - every computer is different, so I can't give you exact directions. You can also try to use Windows Update to get drivers - it is located in the start menu.

    You can not. However, I'm not sure why you think it's a privacy or security threat. The only thing that can be accessed without unlocking the phone is the camera to take pictures. No one can access your data already on the phone.
