First, I hope I posted this in the right category.

Ok, here's the issue, I can't surf the web after after I leave my PC alone. This only happens when after it goes into a screensaver mode.

Here are my settings:
14 minutes for my screensaver
20 minutes to turn off monitor

The problem is my zonealarm. After shutting down zonealarm, everything is fine.
This seems to be at a random case. It can anytime after the monitor shuts down.

So basically, my solution to this is shutdown zonealarm or restart. Is there a way to prevent this? I cant seem to find any settings in ZA.

Well it may just need to be reset. You should see in the front of the router a small hole that is about 1/8 inch. Get a paper clip and then press the button that is on the other side of the hole.
Mine you have to press and hold a couple seconds and you see the one light turn red and then it will turn green again after a couple seconds.

Have you checked in Device Manager under the properties of the NIC? Make sure the "Allow Windows to shutdown this device to save power" option is disabled.
