A friend of mine is using xp home, dell box, zonealarm and a d-link router. In ZoneAlarm in the Firewall section, in Internet Zone Security he can only get on the Internet in the Medium setting. We took the router out and on High (stealth mode) he can't get on the Internet. If he moves it to Medium setting he can get on the INternet. Anyone know whats going on here.

Hi macten, toying with the Internet Zone Security will change access to the net. Its all about your computer showing a little to also recieve information. If the settings are high you limit what you can visit, so stick with medium. That's enough in terms of protection (on a virus free pc) so long as your friend isnt prone to click on every .exe that pops up.

I've got xp pro and w2ooo pro and high works well on both of my machines. He has xp home and high won't work for him. He lives about 100 yards from me, has new phone lines/junction box and we are both on Alltel DSL. His computer is newer than mine. Why can I use a high setting and he can't?
