Have a new Toshiba satellite pro running XP Pro
and a Linksys WRT54G2 V1 wireless router.
"The starting IP address of the router if it's DHCP is to"

After I installed ZoneAlarm (version the start up process takes several minutes.
ZoneAlarm help pages say to fix slow start up "...add the host name or IP address of your network's Domain Controller
to the Trusted Zone".

I have added that address range to the Trusted Zone but it is still slow to boot.
There are IP addresses (Trusted Zone) for DHCP Server ( and two DNS servers.
Any other suggestions to speed up the start up process?


Operating System:Windows XP Pro
Software Version:8.0
