OK this is weird! I saved all my network and IP settings into a file and
then deleted my current location. I then went through all the setup
procedures to recreate my Network and IP accounts. When I tested the Airport
again, everything worked as it should once again. all applications now work
with their customary zip. I find this very strange since everything is
exactly the same as it was before!
