Recently I tried to assist a friend who was having constant problems with his new broadband connection crashing.Various things were attempted, and the advice from BT and Freeserve was to disable the ZoneAlarm firewall.Various tests were then conducted, and the machine seemed to work without crashing. Further investigations are being conducted, to see if the firewall was the actual culprit.Apparently when you have a firewall, like the ZoneAlarm freebie, it will work fine on 56k, but when broadband is connected, then problems seem to appear.ZoneAlarm paid up version seems to correct this problem.
