Your Internet Speed Will Slow Down if You Use Both a Router and Windows Firewall for your Laptop

If your wireless laptop internet speed is not as fast as your like, here’s what could be the root of your problem that no one ever alerted you to: The combination of running Windows Firewall and your Wireless Router means you are going through 2 Firewalls for everything you click on the internet which slows speed down considerably. I was never aware of this till someone at the Wireless Department for my Cable Broadband Service told me this 5 years after I started wireless service with them. You’d think they would have let me know about this when I started my service with them. To anyone reading this post, what I’m writing here is strictly my opinion and feel free to disregard.
