    how did you get to the firewall settings? did you go through the security center or the properties of the network card? If you did go through the security center, try going into the properties for the network card to see if you can turn off your firewall there.

    I've seen the WMI get corrupted and caused an issue from preventing you to access the setting. Not sure what you can do for that, except for maybe reinstalling the service pack or a repair. It could be possible that what ever is corrupted is related to your connection issues.

    As for turning off the firewall, go to your start menu > then go to run > then type in: netsh firewall set opmode disable

    That will disable your firewall, you can change it to enable if you want it back on.
