Hello,

Not sure if this is the spot to ask this question, but here goes.

I have Zone Alarm installed and I keep getting a message that it blocked an attack on my PC from an IP address of 192.168.x.xx
Furhter information says it may be a part of my local network. I am running a home network with 7 PC's and a couple of printers.
My question is this. How do I find out if that specific address is a part of my local network? I looked in the router and the ranges are very close but I can't find that specific address.

Any help is appreciated.

I had a similar problem just a few days ago.

If you go to "my network places" and then click on "network connections", there should be all of your connections. And double click on any of them, then click on the support tab, there will be an IP address.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,

Unfortunately only one of the connections has an IP associated with it and its not the one I'm looking for. Does the modem have an IP Address? The warning said something about it was trying to Ping my PC. The other PC with Zone Alarm came up with the same message at the same time. I'm thinking it may be either the router or the modem? Could it also be the printer? I have it on a wireless connection.

I'm not sure but in my case, it was the IP of the wireless gateway.

I think another way you can find the IP address is to go to http://home on your browser and there should be a place to find the IP of all of the devices in your network.

Hi there,

More than likely it's Netbios traffic. If you have file and printer sharing enabled then some of that traffic is often blocked or flagged by firewalls.
