Home Network Trusted if Router Connected to Internet?
This is a simple question, but one I didn't see directly answered.
My home network is connected to the internet.
Do I still place it in the trusted zone?
I did this briefly, and then my computer started to download and upload immediately, although I don't have any idea of what it was transferring.
Also, by placing it in the internet zone, I constantly see logs being written about traffic being blocked regarding 192.168.1.1.
Is this legitamate traffic?
My router already has a firewall on it.
Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

ensure that your DNS and DHCP is set to trusted and the firewall zone.
See here how to determine your DNS/DHCP:
and how to add them to ZA:
... if you need to share resources with other PC attached to the router than set your LAN as trusted too.
Also ensure you are on the latest version, see here:
