New Network Found........ says Zone Alarm.

Every time I go online with a not often used Laptop which has ZA as firewall, I am challenged about the choice for level of security, and would I like to name the new network.

XP Pro SP3, Yahoo, Google thoroughly scoured for malware, none found.

I've tried every way I know to eliminate this extra step. Can someone please give me a clever way to convince ZA that it already has my answer?

It usually means that it is booting up before your firewall is being connected.If you leave it for a couple of minutes it should disappear.

If not just choose home network and it should not show again.

But wait for other comments.

Thanks Jock1e, have tried all you suggested including naming the new network as HOME as in first setting up. Reboots galore just to be sure.

I feel that this is a config matter with ZA itself but can't find a tab or opportunity to fix this one.

As I said it is a trivial matter but one I'd like to solve.

I have the same problem every now and then and I am using Eset Smart6.If I leave it and it connects properly to the internet it goes away but I just clicked home the last time and so far it has not returned.
