I recently upgraded to Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite. It's the latest version - I just downloaded & updated. I noticed immediately that internet access speed has dropped. I then noticed that for some pages, the lack of speed is actually a total lack of function. Specifically, the category browsing / selection pages of ebay when you wish to list an item.
I have a local in-home wireless network, but the PC in question is hard-wired to the router which is then connected to the cable modem.
I've narrowed the problem child down to the actual firewall. If I turn it OFF, everything works quickly and perfectly. But I don't WANT it to be off. Is there something I'm missing in configuring this software to run smoothly?
I have the following in Trusted:
1) Loopback 127.0.0.1
2) My entire wireless network 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0
3) My works VPN server IP address
I tried adding www.ebay.com to the trusted as a site, but it made no difference. I'm certain ebay is just a specific example of a category of problem.
Thanks for your assistance,
