is windows firewall needed

  Head hurts 21:11 28 Jun 2007

i have a netgear dg834pn which has a built in firewall and i also have windows firewall running. when i had windows xp i used zone alarm which worked great. windows firewall is supposed to notify me of blocked sites etc but it does not do so. i was wondering in view of this is there any point in having it running or is it best switched off until zone alarm release a vista version? hope you dont mind these questions but i have googled the problem and cannot find an answer as to why windows firewall does not notify me of software attempting access in or out. am i missing something oh so obvious?
