    Default Internet settings for single pc

    I have just installed ZA Security Suite on WindowsXP. I'm a single home pc user on a wireless ADSL connection. Followed the excellent directions and set up the trusted zone as follows -
    Loopback - trusted
    DHCP - trusted
    DNS - trusted

    Then - ZA detected my wireless network, and I (not sure what I was doing) added it to the Internet zone and its sitting there now with IP range 192.168.1.0 - 255.255.255.0 is this correct? I can't remove it - it tells me that an active network can't be removed and yet I'm not on a network. Have I botched this up, or is this ok?

    Many thanks.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    This is OK. The 192.168.1.0 address is still your lan or the router. I usually give this advice, so you will have some idea what is going on when you can see it front of you:

    Make sure your DNS and DHCP server IP's are in your Firewall's Trusted zone. Finding DNS and DCHP servers, etc

    1. Go to Run and type in command and hit 'ok', and in the command then type in ipconfig /all then press the enter key. In the returned data list will be a line DNS and DHCP Servers with the IP address(s) listed out to the side.
    2. In ZA on your machine on the Firewall>Zones tab click Add and then select IP Address. Make sure the Zone is set to Trusted.
    3. Click OK and then Apply and see if that works to fix it.
    4. The localhost (127.0.0.1) must be listed as Trusted.
    5. The Generic Host Process (svchost.exe) as seen in the Zone Alarm's Program's list must have server rights for the Trusted Zone.
    Plus it must have both Trusted and Internet Access.

    Extra help is found at Guru Hoov site for the DNS/DHCP.
