I have a simple crosover network between my pc(host) and my laptop(client). It is definetly zonealarm (newest version) as when it is off I can access the net. I have tried setting the client with ip address, sub net and gateway and let it pick an ip itself but the result is the same. Have set zonealrm to allow sharing. The computers can comunicate over the network its just that the client an not use he internet even though it says it is connected. Help please.
