Title: Evaluating AIS - What am I connected to?
Post by: MikeAK on August 02, 2010, 01:29:14 PM

Just downloaded and installed evalution of AIS with aview to buying. Installed no problems I set my local network (connected to internet via netgear router) to "Home / Low Risk Zone". I can see other computer on my network fine.

What bothers me is when I look at the Firewall tab it says "Currently connected to: MANCHESTER RESIDENTIAL STATIC (Atheros AR9285 802.11b/g/n, UK)".

Why doesn't it say connected to my local network, does this mean I am trusting/sharing with everyone on my ISP's gateway?
