Here is my setup: Windows XP SP3, Zonealarm Extreme Security version 9.1.008.000
1. I disconnect my wireless connection, put my Windows machine in Standby or Hibernate and then start it later and I simply cannot connect using my wireless connection using my Lenovo Access Connections utility. I have found a workaround - I shutdown zonealarm, restart it and then try and most of the times it works but not always and so wanted to know if there is some other sequence that is guaranteed to work always.
2. The other problem I have is when I do a shutdown. I restart and sometimes the Firewall->Zones section shows a Network 169.254.0.0 and I cannot connect using my wireless connection. Again I have to shutdown Zonealarm, start it again, the 169.254.0.0 goes away and then I can connect to the wireless network. Even here I have to try a few times to get it to work but most often than not it works and so I am able to continue. But this trial and error is frustrating. Does anyone face the same issues and have any suggestions?
I used the new cleaner to get rid of my old zonealarm and installed the new one.
