If you having trouble accessing Web pages with NetZero HiSpeed, there are several steps to try to troubleshoot the issue:
* = If applicable
A. Verify that you logged in with a NetZero HiSpeed-enabled account
If you use multiple NetZero accounts on the same computer, NetZero HiSpeed will only be enabled when logging in with the account with which you paid for the NetZero HiSpeed service. Please check that the Member ID you logged in with is a NetZero HiSpeed-enabled account.
To check to see if your account is NetZero HiSpeed-enabled, please visit https://account.netzero.net/s/account
B. Adjust your firewall settings
In order to successfully connect to NetZero HiSpeed, you will need to change the Internet security setting of your firewall program to a setting compatible with any dial-up ISP such as NetZero, usually Medium.
Occasionally, after the initial installation of the NetZero software, you may receive a notice that exec, x1exec, ZCast or NZVoice.exe is trying to logon to the Internet. If you see this message, please click Yes to allow the NetZero software access to the Internet. If you don't allow access, our software will be unable to function properly.
C. Change your firewall settings to allow exec, x1exec, Zcast and NZVoice.exe to access the Internet
When you log on to NetZero for the first time with a firewall program installed, the program may ask if you want to allow exec, x1exec, Zcast or NZVoice.exe to connect to the Internet. exec.exe, x1exec.exe, Zcast.exe and NZVoice.exe are the internal names of files in the NetZero HiSpeed program, and must be given access privileges in order to work correctly. If you accidentally chose to prevent exec, x1exec, Zcast or NZVoice.exe from accessing the Internet, you will likely get NetZero HiSpeed Unavailable errors when trying to get online.
To fix this, you will need to change your firewall's setting to allow exec, x1exec , Zcast and NZVoice.exe to access the Internet.
Note: If you have multiple firewalls installed on your computer, you will need to allow exec, x1exec.exe, Zcast.exe and NZVoice.exe to access the Internet on all the firewalls installed.
