    Default internet stops working after computer is idle

    After I leave my computer for an hour or so, I try to get on the internet and it doesn't work. I went to ZoneAlarm and switched my Ethernet adapter from the "internet" zone to the "trusted" zone and then the internet starts working again. This is strange because my other computers have the Ethernet adapter on the "internet zone" and they work fine after the computer is idle.

    Is there any other possible reason ZoneAlarm is shutting down the internet after the computer is idle for a while?

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