  1. Hi, I've developed a big problem. I've got exams coming up and I reallllly need an internet connection at home. I recently updated my zonealarm and then my pc now doesn't connect to the internet.

    - Before upgrade it was fine, afterwards I get "limited or no connectivity". I have a netgear router and my LAN ip is normally 192.168.0.x
    - Now, the LAN IP is something drastically different (e.g. 169.254.xx.xx) PLUS my Subnet Mask is as opposed to
    - Cannot connect to the internet (can't acquire the WAN IP when I use IP2 either)

    - I've not uninstalled zonealarm and it still can't acquire a proper IP address (when i click repair, it can't renew ip)
    - I've tried resetting the router and doesn't work

    since you know yer way round the nic
    if ya can just reset the nic yourself
    gor to the router get your wan dns ip address's should be 2 there
    make sure the router is at default as gateway
    go to your nic and make the ip for it
    default gateway
    down below enter your dns ip address's and say ok
    as I have said before AV is more of pain in bottom then getting a virus
    if you keep up good firewall like your router and good software firewall like outpost or sygate and of course don't do stupid things like open emails that say your a winner
    or heres your info you requested and no porn sights you should just about never get caught with pants down
    I hope the above helps those AV's have a way of leeching the life out of the machine
