I have a 7 month old Toshiba satellite notebook with an internal wireless card. When it was new came with McAfee Antivirus.
I turned the notebook on - it found my wireless network no issue.
I then changed to ZoneAlarm. At home works fine.
When I go to Panera and attempt to use their free wireless... My wireless network connection icon says - 2 networks available click here to choose one.
When I click - It says NO networks available.

I found out my notebook has configfree software to find the wireless access points.
I attempted to use that software That software showed the access points but when I
Tried to connect it said error connecting.
I then changed my TCPIP setting took the checkmark out of allow Windows to manage my connection and
still got the error - can not connect.

I change all of my settings back - And when I went home - I had the same issues as at the Panera.
I finally had to do a windows restore to connect at home.

HELP - does anybody have clue what I need to change I would like to use my notebook wireless on other networks.

I am pretty lame. My network is open at home.

Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition
Software Version: 7.0
I am Running - ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

Try disabling ALL the firewalls, because I suspect that's the root of the problem.
