First let me say, I've use the free version for years, and loved it. Ever since I bought Pro, I've had nothing but problems. It's slowing my computer down, my computer isn't being recognized, and now I keep losing my connection.
Here's my setup.
1 laptop (WINXP ME with the Pro version and with which I connect wirelessly
1 desktop (WINXP ME) with ZA free with which I connect to a router
netgear router wgt624 v.2
westell 6100 dsl modem
My problem is that in Firewall/Zones all I see is New Network 192.168.0.0/255.255.255.0 (which is in the trusted zone) but there's nothing else there. No loopback adapter, no network adapter showing my computer's ip address...nothing. (this is with the pro version on the wireless laptop). On the free version, I always saw this configuration and don't understand why I don't see it now. Is my laptop being protected? I can get an internet connection, but recently it has been cutting out on me. This only started after I installed ZA pro as well. Before I has the free version and everything was working great. No problems at all. Now, it will cut out, and I cannot get reconnected unless I reboot. I was thinking it was a problem with my router/modem configuration because I had it setup with PPOE rather than by default, but after messing with different types of configurations, I've come to the conclusion that it will always stay as 192.168.0.0. Can anyone tell me why this is? Also, can someone tell me how my router should be set up to fix this problem...if by chance I've made an error. I had to configure my modem differently due to the slingbox, which turned out to be a minor pain to set up. I don't want to lose connectivity to that, but I also don't want to have to reboot every time the web cuts out on me.
Let me apologize in advance, I'm sorry if I am not being specific enough, it is 4am and I've been at this awhile. If there is something I should have mentioned that I may be forgetting, please ask and I will comply asap. Thank you all for your time, I really appreciate it. Oh by the, before anyone gets mad at me for not searching. I did search the forum for anything related to 192.168.0.0, but a lot of it wasn't relevant to my problem. So I think. But, I came across a couple that looked as if the person was saying that 192.168.0.0 was supposed to be like that. I'm still unsure so any help is greatly appreciated.
Windows XP Pro
EDIT: I wanted to add that the reason I thought it was my router/modem is because, every time I go to my friend's house, their network pops up as normal in ZA Pro. I get a ip address like normal, and everything acts normal like it did when I had the free version on this computer. Thanks again.
