I apologize in advance if this issue has been covered on here a million times I did research last night on Yahoo, Google, and Bing and didn't find a result that was close or exactly like the one I had.
I just recently updated to 9.2.057.000 version of ZoneAlarm and I experienced a new icon in my network connections folder named 'internet connection' and doesn't have any properties at all except to disable the icon from showing on the desktop. When I right click on it the options are to disable/status/rename/properties....If I disable it then my internet won't work at all. Last night I lost connection for about 15 mins and I went and checked and the 'internet connection' from what's called the Internet Gateway couldn't connect. It kept giving me the error message 'connection failed' after about 10 mins it connected and I was able to connect again. Now, my home computer set up is that I'm running cable through a modem which is attached to a router which supplies wireless internet to other computers in the house.
My question is after much internet browsing and not coming up with an issue that is close to mine(most issues were with the wireless connection or not being able to connect at all) is this something new with Zone Alarm(with the new version) if so will I continue to have problems with it connecting? If it becomes a problem is there a way to use the new version without this option??
