yepp, default settings.... install and forget

The only thing i see is the daily update pop-up and from the firewall it comes a warning/info when i switch from my home network to 3G and back again
I have my home network sett to  " Work / medium risk zone " and my 3G to " public / high risk zone "

3G network is surfing on the cell phone network. You can do it by conncting your cell phone to the pc or a USB modem or some computers come with the moden internally so you just insert the sim card in it
