WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface

XP Home SP3 on dialup.

I found "WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface" in ZA Zones. Is this something I need on XP Home and on dialup. The only info I could find that I could understand is that it is necessary for XP Pro using wireless?

Thank you.

It Appears Like You Have A Wireless Adapter On the Computer?

In reply to: WAN (PPP/SLIP) Interface

If so, and IF it's an active subnet mask, you need to leave it there so the wireless adapter can be used at some point in time.. On the other hand, if you don't have such an adapter, I find no reason why it should even show up.. Or, if you want to disable the wireless adapter on your computer, you could then disable/edit/remove the entry from ZA. ZA finds active subnet masks that are active on the computer.

Hope this helps.

Thank you. I was concerned that I might have some kind of boogy-man onboard the machine. Guess I'll leave it be, who knows what the future holds.
