I am using NTL broadband and have zonelarm pro installed. I have just had a message box open with zonealarm saying that "a new network has been detected" and press the ok button. There is no button to press saying whether you don't want to accept this. So I pressed the ok button. First of all what does the message mean, and was it alright to press the ok button as there was nothing else to press.

New Network alert
A New Network alert appears when Zone Labs security software detects that you're connected to a network you haven't seen before. You can use the alert pop-up to enable file and printer sharing with that network. New Network alerts occur when you connect to any network--be it a wireless home network, a business LAN, or your ISP's network.

The first time you use Zone Labs security software, you will almost certainly see a New Network alert. Don't worry! This alert is a convenience tool designed to help you configure Zone Labs security software.

Why these alerts occur
New Network alerts occur when you connect to any network--be it a wireless home network, a business LAN, or your ISP's network.

What you should do
How you respond to a New Network alert depends on your particular network situation.

If you are connected to a home or business local network and you want to share resources with the other computers on the network, put the network in the Trusted Zone.

To add the new network to the Trusted Zone:

In the New Network alert pop-up, type a name for the network (for example "Home NW") in the Name box.


Select Trusted Zone from the Zone drop-down list.


Click OK.



If you are not certain what network Zone Labs security software has detected, write down the IP address displayed in the alert box. Then consult your home network documentation, systems administrator, or ISP to determine what network it is. Use caution if Zone Labs security software detects a wireless network. It is possible for your wireless network adapter to pick up a network other than your own. Be sure that the IP address displayed in the New Network alert is your network's IP address before you add it to the Trusted Zone.


If you are connected to the Internet through a standard modem and dial-up connection, a Digital Subscriber Line (DSL), or a cable modem, click OK in the New Network alert pop-up.

If you click Cancel, Zone Labs security software will block your Internet connection. Do not add your ISP network to the Trusted Zone.


How to see fewer of these alerts
It is unusual to receive a lot of New Network alerts.
