Since downloading Bitdefender I'm unable to access the internet through wi-fi unless I plug in. When I call customer services the line goes dead and the online access says too many attempts - clear cookies! Really having a bad 1st experience with this product and wish I never purchased it...

How do I access the firewall on this application to allow my local network to connect to the internet? Maybe its straight forward but I can't find this information where ever I look?
