If there is a problem it may be harder to diagnose which firewall is causing it. Chose either the AT&T or XP SP2/SP3 firewall to disable.

Chances are you only have one of those software firewalls running. Look under firewalls in the Security Centre. If it says that the firewall from your AT&T suite is on then the Windows firewall will be switched off. Leave the firewall on your router on as it will not cause any conflicts.
