Stop ZoneAlarm From Blocking Your Wireless Network!

You can solve most connection problems by putting your home network into ZoneAlarm's Trusted Zone. That will stop it from blocking your other networked computers and your router.

In ZoneAlarm, click Firewall on the left-hand menu. Select the Zones tab. You'll see a list including your home network. In fact, it might be the only thing listed. Under the Zone column, click the row that lists your network. Select Trusted. Then click the Apply button at the bottom of the window.

Are you using Windows' Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) instead of a router? According to Zone Labs, only the pay versions of ZoneAlarm have full support for ICS. If you're using the free version, that may be the source of the problem.

Otherwise, make sure it's set up for ICS. Open ZoneAlarm on the computer that's directly connected to the Internet. Click Firewall on the left-hand menu. Select the Main tab. Click the Advanced button at the bottom of the window.

Under Internet Connection Sharing, select "This computer is an ICS/NAT gateway." Then you'll need to enter the computer's IP address. To find it, click Start>>Control Panel. Double-click Network Connections. Right-click your network and select Status. Select the Support tab. The computer's IP Address is appropriately labeled "IP Address."

Enter that address into the ZoneAlarm window and click OK. Now there's just one more step for the computers sharing your Internet connection.

On other networked computers using ZoneAlarm, open ZoneAlarm and click Firewall from the left-hand menu. Select the Main tab. Click the Advanced button at the bottom of the window. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select "This computer is a client of an ICS/NAT gateway" Then click OK.

Make A Used Computer Your Own! (Change Owner Registration)

To change the owner registration:

-Click Start>>Run
-Enter "regedit" (without the quotes) in the box and click OK


I don't publish the actual hacks in my newsletters! You can get this one at my Customer Support Site! This is a Free Site that I am combining several sites to. All that you have to do is register if you haven't already!


-Close Registry Editor.

The correct name should now show. To check, go to Control Panel (Start>>Control Panel or Start>>Settings>>Control Panel). Double-click System. On the General tab, look under Registered To.

Windows XP also shows the user's name on the Start menu. This is simply the name on the user account. Access the user accounts by clicking Start>>Control Panel. Double-click User Accounts.

You can cancel old accounts here. First, create an administrator account for yourself. Then, cancel all other accounts. Close out all windows and reboot. When the computer comes up, your name should be on the Start menu.

Rebuild The TCP/IP Stack In Windows XP!

There are times when a network snafu completely or partially corrupts your IP installation, which causes your TCP/IP network connection to fail or behave erratically. When this happens, the best solution is to rebuild the TCP/IP protocol stack.

In previous versions of Windows, rebuilding the TCP/IP protocol stack was a simple operation-you just removed and reinstalled TCP/IP. In Windows XP, you can't remove TCP/IP because it's considered an integral part of the operating system.

However, XP does come with a command-line utility-called NetShell-that allows you to reset all TCP/IP-related registry settings to their default values. The end result is essentially the same as installing a brand-new TCP/IP configuration.

To reset all TCP/IP-related registry settings, open a command prompt and type the following command:

netsh int ip reset <filename>

You must specify a log file in the <filename> placeholder for this command to work. Details about which registry keys were modified will appear in the log file.
