• Windstream broadband firewall information

    Does my Windstream broadband equipment have a firewall?

    If you are a Windstream broadband customer that started service after May 17, 2004, then you received our new SpeedStream 5200/4200 router that has a built-in firewall for your protection. Some customers may have also upgraded to their older Speedstream modem to a router.

    In some cases, the firewall came pre-configured with a Medium Firewall protection level that keeps certain programs or services from running correctly. Visit our Broadband Checkup Center to change the firewall level configured on your router.
