Each time I boot up OA tells me it finds a new network...

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have a dual boot system with XP & 7 -64. Each time I boot Win 7 OA tells me it found a new netowrk and I OK it and allow it. I can't get the program to remember that the network it found is on my home machine! I do not get the message when I boot to XP Pro SP3.

 

Using version 6.0.0.1736 with auto updates ON.The MB is an Asus Rampage Exterme and I am uising the 2nd of two ethernet connection for my internet access.

 

Love the program and the protection it provides!

 

Thank you all in advance.

May I ask if you have Online Armor installed on the same hard drive in Windows 7 that you do with Windows XP?

Hello Arthur,

 

Yes I do, as I stated the machine is a dual boot one running XP Pr0 and Win 7 64. That said, the two OS exist on separate partitions so they are isolated from each other.If there is some interaction between them I don't understand how that is occuring.

 

Thank you!

If they are on different partitions, then the filesystems will be isolated, and there shouldn't be any problems due to that setup.

I assume that your Windows XP and Windows 7 installations both connect to the Internet through the same networking device? Is it wireless, hardwired, or a cellular broadband card? Have you checked to verify that the name of the connection does not keep changing in Windows 7?

You are correct in that XP and & connect to the net using the same internet connection, via Ethernet cable and cable modem. I will check to see if the name keeps changing and let you know.

 

Happy 4th!
