    Default ZA appears to reduce DOWNLOAD speed. Any help.

    I am using ver7.0.337.000.
    Windows 2000 Pro, SP4
    Cable Modem
    Linksys Router (The router is listed in the TRUSTED ZONE as NETWORK - 192.168.1.1/255.255.255.0)

    I find that download speeds with ZA ON fall to about 600kbps; with ZA OFF the speed is 5800 to 6000kbps.

    This seems to be a severe penalty for using ZA. Is this an install problem, settings problem, or what?

    Is there a workaround or fix?

    Sorry if I've left off a piece of info necessary to answer this query.

    Thanks,

    jp

    Do you have the passive transfer turned on?

    Here's where I admit total ignorance.....I don't know what that is, or how to turn it on or off.

    Can you explain?

    Thanks,
