Who's computer has the IP 192.168.2.1?  That machine is trying to access your machine, maybe to share files or printers or to drop a  virus on your machine.  Zonelabs is protecting your machine because that is what you asked it to do.

Did you want to allow access to your computer from other computers?

Are you actually having issues with your system connecting to something you want to be able to do?

please stop yelling at me. : )

You say you are connected in "a my friend's workplace"
1.  Please clarify - this is your actual friend's WorkPlace? He owns the business or he is an employee of the business? Or is 'my friends workplace' an ISP?

2.  Who owns the router that you are plugged into or are you wireless?

3.  Can you talk to the person that owns the router?

4.  What OS are you running.

Now to answer your questions.  Basically when you set up a router, it should assign IP addresses to anyone that requests one from it (IE. your computer, your friends computer, your friends printer)

The routers default IP addresses it assigns usually start with something like 192.168.2.1 and then 192.168.2.2 and up and up for each computer or networked attached device.  Whoever controls the router (and hopefully the password for the router) should be able to tell you which machine owns the IP address 192.168.2.1

If you are running WinXP, try this. Go to Sart->Run and type in cmd and then hit enter.  In the open window now type ipconfig and hit enter.  What does it show you for your IP address?  It should be something like 192.168.2.X where X = any number.

Now chances are that your 192.168.2.1 is not infected but it is running an OS that is Searching the Network for any attached computers, files or Printers
