    Default Bogus New Network Found (in Trusted Zone Range) on PC Startup



    Why do I get a New Network Found message when I first start up my PC, even though
    the IP address found is in an IP Range that I have entered as Trusted in the Firewall Zones screen?

    Operating System:Windows XP Home Edition
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro
    Software Version:7.0

    Is this a wireless connection or a wired connection?

    This is for a DSL connection (SBC/Yahoo).

    Using a wired or wireless router?

    Static or dynamic assigned IP?

    No router.
    Just plugged in to the phone plug.
    Nothing wireless on this.
    Dynamic IP assigned through SBC/Yahoo.
    (I have an IP Range set up as Trusted for the range of IP addresses that may be assigned dynamically by SBC/Yahoo on connect.)

    If both the DNS and DHCP address are listed as the complete ranges, then there should not be a problem. The gateway address maybe not included.What does the ipconfig /all command show? Any indication of gateway addresses or do the DNS and DHCP addresses that appear also coincide with the ranges?



    A cheap SPI/NAT router with a proper adl modem or a proper adl modem with NAT included would solve the problem and provide additional inbound security (where most of the firewalling security is needed).
