    Default 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
    Is this legitamate traffic?
    My router already has a firewall on it.

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Software Version:7.0
    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:
