Could anyone help with the following problem.
I have just instaled a wireless network across 2 computers using a ad-hoc connection, I was using zonealarm for my firewall and the computers couldn't see each other so I dissabled that and it worked so I forked out for the pro version of zonealarm, and while I can share files and printers etc it won't let me share the broadband internet connection. Any help would be appreciated.

I am currently using windows firewall which I do not trust!!

Have you enabled internet connection sharing?

I think so as I am using the system in an other room now, but not using zonealarm.How do you enable it?

Open ZA go to Firewall/Main/Advanced, there you will find the options for internet connection sharing.

If it is working at this moment I think it is enabled. In Zonealarm have you put each computer as trusted network?

If you put PC's in the internet zone then according to ZA help
Placing a network in the Internet Zone prevents you from sharing resources with other computers on that network and protects you from the security risks associated with resource sharing. Unknown networks should go in the Internet Zone.

Home networks should go into the Trusted Zone.
