      WWW off, downloads - on

      Well, before i formatted my pc, www and downloads worked fine even if i kept pc on for 2 days. Couple days ago i formatted hdd and noticed www disconnections. I kept download through the night, woke up, download speed is as it should be, but www doesn't work, had to reboot pc and all back to normal. Same happens when computer is left on standby.

      When i got sky about 10 months ago, i had the same thing happening, but found help on the internet somewhere. It explained that something had to be added to firewall exeption (if i remember right) to keep connection alive all the time. I can't find that site anymore.

      Anyone has any ideas how to keep www alive ?

      Thx

      What do you mean "whole of the Internet" ?
      NONE of the sites can be loaded. Any www site is "cannot load page" or smth.
      But utorrent works perfectly
      Maybe it has to do with zonealarm ?

      If it works with Zone Alarm off then your settings within the program are wrong. What do you have both your internet and trusted setting set as ?

      That is what I have mine set at. It it fails again try changing the internet one to meduim. It will not do any halm as you are behind a router with an inbuilt firewall so you are fully protected.
