Norton Internet Secty conflict w/ wireless network

Has anyone else (besides me) had any difficulty with NIS conflicting with setting up or running a wirless network?

I'v ehad a few wasted days trying to get w'less networking to work.

I tried for hours the other day and gave up. Then when I switched the machine on later - it found the wireless network and it was all so easy.( avoid older cards with AMD177 chipsets unless you really know your stuff- I gave up on them but others can be a hassle).

Norton Internet security caused me big problems with Learn Direct, T-mobile and Loot - blocking pop-ups and java (Ithink - I don't use it anymore)

I'd rather use AVG (lovely, easy new i/face), AdAware and Zone Alarm but, if you're sticking with NIS - get into your options and switch it off till you've got your connection working (watch out 'cos it will reload every time you re-start etc).

(Don't know about anyone else, but I find renaming/replacing old networks never seems to work first time round - or even 2nd attempt..

Good luck!

Most firewalls will normally block internal network traffic by default, whether the network be wired or wireless.

I have not used Norton, so I cannot give you any specific guidance, however there is likely to be somewhere for you to enter IP addresses that you want to allow through the firewall.

what sort of error messages or problems do you receive. I have a wireless network and running NIS works fine.

Have a wireless PCMCIA card, which says it has limited or no connectivity whenever I log on to the network. In fact, it has no connectivity. This does not repair (under that option), though shows that the card is working normally.

maybe you have a faulty card
