Some cable companies use the MAC address of the primary device to authenticate the connection - switching from one network card or router to another can result in no connectivity - a quick call to the cable company can resolve that.
Why do you need to disable the firewall? If its a specific application you can setup port forwarding.
But the firewall can be disabled on most routers - you need to log into it and find the firewall settings. Or you can but the computer you are using into the DMZ so the firewall isn't active for it - but in that case you need to assign the computer a static IP address.
so i bypassed my router, and as my luck is, it didnt work as planned, the last problem i can think of is SP2,it has a limit on connections, and the only way to disable this is by editing the TCPIP.sys file i believe, any suggestions?
