Firewall problems

  ooermrs 16:38 12 Nov 2006

I replaced my zoom adsl usb modem with a zoom x3 adsl modem+gateway+router. Since then it won't connect to the internet if zone alarm firewall is running but if i turn it off and use windows firewall it connects straight away. Any ideas why it'll not connect, any settings i could change ?? Thanks in advance.

Normally you only use one firewall as two together can block the connection. Decide which firewall you want to use and disable the other one.

Hi, your new router also has a built-in Firewall, so you do not need ZA.
