    Default Blocked Internet access????

    Hi- this is my first post. I'm running zone alarm seems to be working well. Every couple of days I get a message that says: "The firewall has blocked internet access to (DNS) from your computer". I lose all intrenet access and have to reboot inorder to restore it. I believe it is blocking access to my router? but I don't know why?

    Any help would be appreciated?


    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm (Free)
    Software Version:6.5

    Add the ip's of DHCP and DNS servers to trusted zone.Hit start-run-cmd-OK and in the command window type ipconfig /all
    Take note of the ip's of DHCP and DNS servers (can be more than 1).Go to tab firewall zones and at the bottom click add and choose ip address.Enter a brief description and enter the ip's you found and ensure the zone is setted to trusted.You need to do this one by one.
    Best regards

    Thank you for your help...that worked great, and I have not had any more trouble.

    One concern????
    If i've now allowed all traffic from my router,
    does that take away all the firewall protection of my router (ie anything that gets passed my router gets allowed into my computer???
