Here's an interesting problem. I'm running Zonealarm on my system. As of a few days ago, I started having problems connecting to the web after letting my computer sit for awhile. If I shut down Zonealarm, everything works again. BTW-the automatic lock on Zonealarm is off. I have a cable modem connected to a Linksys router. The router has a firewall built in but I've been using it with Zonealarm for over a year with no problems. I like using the software firewall as well since it gives me control over outbound internet access. I guess I could just run with the hardware firewall in the router but this is just kinda weird. I'm just wondering if anyone has any ideas. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
