    Hi all,
    I am running zonealarm pro on an xp pro box.
    I use a wireless connection .
    Only problem is , on startup of the computer i have to give permission for
    the wireless connection to start every time , where as with an ethernet
    cable zonealarm just allows it automaticaly.
    Any ideas would be welcome , as the machine is shared but only i can give
    permissions in zonealarm (stops kids buggering things up).

  2. Under the "Firewall" button > "Zones" tab > put your network in the
    "Trusted" zone, by highlighting the network and using the edit button.

    Once you give the balloon window permission, you should be able to check the
    "always allow" box.

    There could be something you're not seeing or saying, but it doesn't look
    like a problem to me. Your "wireless connection" [access point; router;
    etc.,] seems to be the wildcard in this scenario. Check those settings.
    Also, which version of ZApro might be relevant if someone ever experienced
    similar perplexations.

    In your Intenet Options > Connections tab > LAN settings button there's an
    option to check "Automatically detect settings". I leave mine unchecked, and
    it always works fine.


    If: You've ever said "Clean air? Looks clean to me;" or
    or you fax the FBI a list of "Terrorists In My Neighborhood;"
    or you scream "Dit-dit-ditto" while making love...

    then, you *might* be a Conservative Right-Wing Republican!

    I used ZA free for a long time until I updated it then I had problems
    sharing files across a wireless connection.
    Uninstalled ZA and installed Comodo free and no problems now.

    What type of wireless router are you running? You may not need a
    software firewall.
