Hello,I have a home network with my desktop connected to a D-Link DI -- 524 wireless router by an ethernet cable, and a laptop computer which connects through this same router wirelessly.The wireless router is protected by WEP -- PSK encryption. Since I have recently installed the latest zone alarm security suite updates, I have been getting the message "new network found". And I then have to a signed a security setting, either Internet or trusted. The trouble widows with the IP address on this new network. I'm pretty sure it belongs to the network I'm running, but I'm not positive. When I run ipconfig on both of the computers, I get IP addresses that only vary in the last three digits -- 1 computer ends in .103, and the other oneends in .100, and they both show the same default gateway address, ending in 0.1. Isuppose this default gateway is the D-Link wireless router? And both computers also have the exact same "subnet mask" number. But the "new network" IP address is otherwise identical to the two computers and the default gateway, but it ends in .0 .0.Also, the "subnet mask" number is identical to the two computers when I checked them on IP config. So I'm confused as to what this number belongs to. Since it doesn't belong to either computer or to the default gateway. So what or who is it? Is it part of my home network somehow? And can I safely allow it into the "trusted zone"? Right now, I'm keeping it on Internet zone until I figure it out.
Thanks in advance for any help
