I am using XP Second Edition and use Firefox for a browser and Netscape for email.
I have Charter Cable with a 4MB/s Download and 482 KB/s connection.
When I end my daily computer use I right click Zone Alarm and select "Engage Internet Lock."
The next moring I re-inable Zone Alarm by un-checking "Engage Internet Lock."
However, I cannot connect to the net for about 2-3 minutes after that.
If I open Control Pannel>Local Area Connection>Support>Details>There is no info listed after these 3 items:
1. Default Gateway
2. DNS Server
3. Win Server
When I try to connect to the net or get email it can't connect; however, afterwaiting about 2-3 minutes it finally connects and I then have data listed after the 3 items listed above, leading me to believe that this is an indication of why I am having the delay.
What can I do to have instant net access as I have always had?
