Teredo Tunneling & connected to unsecured wireless network

Yesterday I got the following messages

"Protecting your connection to a newly detected network on Adaptor "Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adaptor (IP Address fe80:: 100:7f:fffe%2)

Detected 02/12/2016 17:00:34"

"Protecting your network to a newly detected network on adaptor "Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1030 (IP Address 192.168.1.40) Detected 02/12/2016 17:00:38"

"IP Address has disappeared from Adaptor TAP-WIN 32 Adaptor V9 #2 (IP Address 169.254.55.106)

Detected 02/12/2016 17:00:38"

There were several more with similar messages

Also if attempt to visit one of the http addresses, Norton tells me that the site is not secure and prohibits access.

What on earth is this about. My wireless setup is ADSL with the router only allowing access to identified people. i.e. the router has instructions that "only the following IP addresses may access the network. As well as this I use Identity Cloaker for all my we access.

Re: Teredo Tunneling & connected to unsecured wireless network

The adapters you are seeing in the logs are part of your computer.  Norton is simply logging the normal connections and disconnections.  Nothing to worry about there.  We will need more information about the site that Norton is blocking.  Are you getting a screen saying the site is malicious?  Usually a notification that a site is not "secure" has to do with encryption and is a warning that comes from your browser, not Norton.

This entry, "IP Address has disappeared from Adaptor TAP-WIN 32 Adaptor V9 #2 (IP Address 169.254.55.106)," occurred because your computer could not obtain an IP address and was assigned an automatic IP address by Windows which disappeared when your machine successfully connected.  See the following for a fuller explanation:

Thanks for that reply SendOfJive, after I posted I also "Googled" Teredo Tunneling which gave me a link back to Norton Community postings in May 2015! All good interestng stuff. Your reply does indeed set my heart at rest! To answer your question - I attempted to access 192.168.1.40 which was where I got the "unsecured site" message.  I guess that is to be expected?

Again thank you for your reply and have a good weekend

Re: Teredo Tunneling & connected to unsecured wireless network

I get the same response that weeshus gets when I try to log into the wireless network at our college (We're protecting you = we're blocking your access). The problem started a while ago after the college changed something in the access procedures. 

My question is how can I get around the Norton block and get access to the network I need? I don't want to have to turn off Norton in order to get connected. The only suggestion I get from the IT department is the same suggestion they always give - just dump Norton (they hate it)! Unfortunately, I may have to do just that if I can't find a way around this problem.

Thanks.

Re: Teredo Tunneling & connected to unsecured wireless network

Thank -  I never really thought about that (obvious as it is) and I'll try it. I have the unfortunate tendency to try to solve things on my own - maybe as a result of useless mail exchanges with tech people (in general) in the distant past so I stopped relying on them..
