Using ZA Security Suite on Windows XP, SP2 version and previously had a fixed wireless ISP and everything worked fine.I recently got AT&T DSL and am using the 2Wire router that they made me purchase. Upon installation I found that the router had a firewall, so I disabled it -- I know you are not supposed to have 2 firewalls running at once. From the very first I started having intermittent, very brief outages on my internet connection. I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure it out - contacted AT&T who said that my line looked fine. Eventually I tried re-enabling the 2Wire firewall and disabling the ZA firewall - and everything now works like a charm. In looking at the system event logs, there were constant DHCP warnings and errors when I had the ZA firewall enabled. I had the dsl network listed in the trusted zone which on the previous network was enough. I did some searching around here and decided I need to have specific IP addresses listed in the trusted zone, so did that, but still have the intermittment problem when I try to use the ZA firewall. In defeat, I have disabled it and gone back to the 2Wire firewall. Can anyone give me some direction on where I went wrong? I would prefer to use the ZA firewall if at all possible. Thanks much.
