    A while back I found that if I restricted UDP/TCP 1024-65536 it would let the endpoint PC keep running and not do much more than browse the web. I swear that worked at the time with XP, but when I went back to use it again with a vista pc, vista won't connect properly to the internet. It says "local only" and browsers can't connect. I found a MS web site that says there are ports used by the OS up to 4500 so I changed it to block 4600-65535 and it still won't connect. Anyone have an idea why this is happening? DHCP works and the system shows up in the device list, but Vista isn't satisfied. Can I get the router to log the restricted ports as they happen?

    thanks,

    steve

    I wonder if this relates to the big change everyone made to the way DNS works - with source-port randomization?
