:S...lol no its not that. I unno but it hasnt happend it the past day so maybe it was just a fluke? unno.
What ISP are you using? It sounds like congestion on their server. Try clicking the link again or hit the refresh button on the toolbar when it happens.

Well, if you're using the latest ZA versions (eg. versions 5+), then I have a hunch that might be your problem. I had a similar problem when I updated to ZA v5 (running bittorrent and ed2k for too long locked up my net access and had do a hard reset), but that problem disappeared when I downgraded back to older versions of ZA. I have also been reading that ZA v5 are quite buggy; are you using ZA v5?

try sygate firewall, much better than ZA IMHO, also make sure you disable the XP firewall if you are running a 3rd party firewall. 2 FW's at the same time = bad.

thanks...when it drys outside i will download those programs and see what happends...i would try now but when it rains out my internet is slow as hell...like 16kbs


Titties remove all outgoing and incoming permissions on your firewall and start from their..I had the same problems a couple of years ago with norton pf.

Once I had done that I just opened all my internet enabled programs and enabled them when prompted by npf. Have you installed a beta of xp2 also?

Hope you sort it.:eek:
