Zone Alarm on my 700m

I am getting a lot of Alerts from Zone Alarm on my wireless notebook
computer. It is blocking the Alerts, but I am wondering what is going on.

I am running Windows XP Home on my desktop and Windows XP Pro on my
notebook. I have Zone Alarm Ver.5.5 on both.

I have set the trusted zones on both.

They are connected by a Linksys Wireless Access Point and the desktop is
connected to the internet via a Linksys router. Both can access the internet
and can access shared files on the other. The notebook can print on the
desktop's printer.

The alerts say that Zone Alarm has blocked Internet access to your computer
(NetBIOS Session) from 169.254.51.219.

TCP Port differs - sometines 139, or 1150, or 1169, etc

Can anyone tell me why the notebook gets the alerts, but the desktop does
not?Thanks.

Well, most likely, 169.254.51.219 is your desktops internal IP address
assigned by the router. It appears that your Desktop is trying to talk to
your notebook. Thus, the reason why the desktop is not getting the alerts.
Is anyone trying to read files from the notebook? Is anyone on the desktop
when the notebook gets these alerts?

169. would never be assigned by a router. It is an internal IP address
assigned by Windows when a network card can't get an IP address.

Does the wireless notebook also have an ethernet port. Bet it does.
Disable it in My Networks and see if the alerts go away. I'll bet the
laptop is talking to itself.

Hi Tom,

I looked at ipconfig on the desktop.

under Ethernet Adapter Network Bridge,
Autoconfigure IP Address = 169.254.51.219 which is the address the alerts
are coming from.

When I click Print on the wireless notebook to use the shared printer that
is attached to the desktop,
I get High Level Alerts on the wireless notebook, but it does print.

Zone Alarm's Zones have that address as Adapter Subnet, Zone = Internet.

I don't understand what's going on.

Thanks for your help, Allen

All your local machines behind your router should be in the Trusted
Zone, not Internet Zone.

Do you have any idea how it got into the Internet Zone in the first place?
The only thing I put there were the trusted zone entries for my network

Should I do ADD and put it in the trusted zonesso it would be in both?
Or remove it first?

I guess you really need to find out why the desktop is getting IP
169.254.51.219 instead of a (more likely) 192.168.x.x address

Sorry - I didn't give you the whole picture from ipconfig on the desktop.
Here it is:

Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 2:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix: socal.rr.com
IP Address 192.168.1.100
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
default Gateway 192.168.1.1

Ethernet Adapter Network Bridge:
Connection-specific DNS Suffix:
Autoconfigure IP Address 169.254.51.219 - which is the
address the alerts are coming from.
Subnet Mask 255.255.0.0
Default Gateway:

I'd appreciate any advice you can give.

Thanks, Allen

You really shouldn't HAVE a network bridge. Open up properties on My
Networks and let us know exactly what you have.

Hi Tom -

My desktop is a Gateway Pentium 4 computer with a low-speed ethernet port
(not used) and a high-speed connector (I use this one.) It is wire-connected
to a 4-port Linksys router. The desktop can share files and and printers
with the notebook and another desktop. That all works fine.

The notebook is a Dell 700m. It is wireless to a Linksys Wireless Access
Point. The WAP is wire-connected to the Linksys router.

My Network, Properties has 4 entries

LAN or High-Speed Internet (1 entry)
Local Area Connection 2
Connected
Intel Pro/1000MTm Desktop

Network Bridge (3 entries)
Local Area Connection
Network Cable Unplugged
Network Cable Unplugged

Network Bridge
Connected
MAC Bridge Miniport

1394 Connection
Connected, Bridged
1394 Net Adapter

Thanks, Allen

Well, the bridges are likely messing you up. If it was me, I'd delete them
all then disable the 1394 device and the Intel Pro/1000.

Why not simply remove the unused "low-speed" Ethernet? Either mark it as
disabled in device manager or remove the low speed Ethernet card completely, if
there is an actual card? ... Ben Myers
