v. 7.0.337.ooo Win2K SP4
I have used ZA for years with minimal problems. Last night, I was configuring a new router (Linksys 300N) to replace my present router (Linksys WRT54g); I was using my laptop and after all of the changing of IP addresses, wireless choices, etc., all was fine. I have not yet installed the new router, just configured it, so I am still using my old setup.
This AM I went downstairs to my desktop computer to find that ZA had found a new network and asked me whether to put it in trusted zone or internet zone. I tried to get out of the choice because there was no new network, only the configured router, which is unplugged. But ZA would not let me do anything but make the choice. I made an arbitrary choice to put it in Internet zone, then I tried to remove it, which did not work. The house network starts from 192.168.0.100 and the newly found "network" is 192.168.0.0 (the new 300N router is set the same as the old, 192.168.0.100 and, as stated, is now unplugged).
Since this AM, my network is now a bit flaky and has necessitated unplugging the modem and router to get back on the internet---twice. It is difficult to dismiss the synchronicity of the problems, as I have not had such a problem since I installed the system 6 months ago.
So... here is some info which may be helpful:
Under Firewall info:
Name IP Address/Site Entry Type Zone
VPN loopback 127.0.0.1 IP Address Trusted
Loopback adapter 127.0.0.1 IP address Trusted
_|_ New Netork 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 Network Internet --- this is the "newly found" network
HOME 192.168.0.100/255.255.255.0 IP Range Trusted
What,if anything, can I do to remove the New Network? If there is nothing, should it be Internet or Trusted? If I keep having a flaky home network, what can I do to start again? If I re-install, will the "New Network" likely be eliminated?
