    Default Re New Network detected: third try

    3rd try.
    I didn't press a wrong key.
    This behaviour is very strange.
    The message posted by itself during normal keying.
    Here I go again trying to finish my plea for help.
    Can anyone explain what is going on?


    I am
    constantly getting 'New Network detected' messages when I go back on line from standby on my modem.
    I am on cable, have not changed my ISP
    and it seems my ISP IP address is constantly changing.
    Zonealarm leaves me no option but to put into the Internet or Trusted zones.
    Being suspicious of being 'hacked' I am worried enough not to use my credit card or internet banking.
    This didn't happen when I worked with just the free Zonealarm firewall.
    I'm now on the full home internet security suite.
    Is the IP address of the ISP changing simply because different computer equipment units
    are being involved each time I go on the net?
    I'm not wonderfully computer literate so I'd appreciate some advice?
    Especially two points - 1.
    Can I trust this behaviour?
    2. If so how do I stop this annoyance nearly every time I go on line?

    Incidentally I should mention that the last time this happened I ignored the New Network consignment demand by Zonealarm, switched the computer power off then found when I booted up again that I didn't get the New Network message and that my ISP IP address was still as before and not the new one.
    I'd greatly appreciate any help and explanations,Best wishes from Edinburgh in Scotland,Pictish.

    Hi pictish

    Try this and see if that helps:

    Make sure your DNS and DHCP server IP's are in your Firewall's Trusted zone. Finding DNS and DCHP servers, etc

    1. Go to Run type in command , hit 'ok', and type ipconfig /all then press enter. In the returned data list will be a line DNS and DHCP Servers with the IP address(s) listed out to the side.
    2. In ZA on your machine on the Firewall>Zones tab click Add and then select IP Address. Make sure the Zone is set to Trusted.
    3. Click OK and then Apply and see if that works to fix it.
    4. The loopback or localhost (127.0.0.1) must be listed as Trusted.
    5. The Generic Host Process (svchost.exe) must have server rights for the Trusted Zone.
    Plus it must have both Trusted and Internet Access.
