    NB: I did not set-up the following scenario (i.e. network adapters, routers, etc.) so I don't really know how it all fits together, however it works.

    The two computer I use:

    1. Windows XP
    Pentium 4 1.7 GHz
    512MB RAM
    Realtek Ethernet Card
    Broadband Connection

    2. Apple MacBook Pro (pretty standard settings - 1GB RAM 100GB 2.0GHz core duo)

    The windows is now running zone alarm and it is now that I can't connect to the internet on the mac.


    The windows had windows firewall running. It was connected (by USB 2.0) to a broadband modem and also (by ethernet lan) to a wireless router. I'm not to sure how the router was set-up but regardless the apple computer would connect to the linksys connection and be able to surf the web.

    After installing zone alarm I am able to connec to linksys but not able to surf the web on my mac.

    Please help as zone alarm is quite useful.

    I have added the ip address of the mac to zone alarm so the alert doesn't come up anymore when i try to use the mac but it still doesn't connect to the internet.

    Well you need to go into the option in zone alarm : Firewall
    2. Click on Advanced down the bottom
    3. On the main computer you use check the box : this computer is a ICS/NAT gateway then click ok.
    4. On the other computer ( if it has zone alarm do this ) check the box that is just above the one I said

    You may have to switch your licence from free to the pro trial to enter those settings though I'm not 100% sure

    That should solve your problem cause it solved my one, but then my network isn't wireless so good luck with solving it (y)

    i would think it better to change the setup if possible
    connect the modem to the router and then the PC's to the router - that way they are not reliant on one PC acting as a router, and should get a much better performance
    need make and models of all the equipment to see if that is possible, also are you using the wireless at all if so on what
