Comodo prevents wireless access

I have been travelling with my laptop and tried to connect to a variety of networks, friends or family wireless routers as well as public hotspots.
Everytime I had to turn Comodo off in order to connect, it wouldn’t let the laptop get an IP address. No popup or anything asking me if I wanted to trust this network or anything like that (running v2)

is this normal behavior? it beats the purpose of a firezqll if you need to turn it off in a hotspot!
