Firewall Settings
« on: June 08, 2015, 05:39:31 AM »

On the Firewall setup, there are two entries which I would like to know if they are worthwhile enabling: (1) SPI and (2) Anti-spoof checking. I had the first one enabled on my old DIR-655 but not the second one. Will enabling them buy me anything?

SPI should be enabled as that is the firewall feature. If you think that your WAN IP address is being spoofed then leave anti spoof check enabled. Nothing should be affected by having it enabled. Or Not.
