Zone Alarm and Vista

I have recently installed zone alarm but it keeps blocking the internet.

I have configured the routers ip address as trusted but still no intenet.

Any ideas?

A few forums have people moaning about Zone alarm and compatibility issues with avg.
Are you using AVG anti virus?
Have you turned off your windows firewall as this will conflict.
Personally,vista's firewall along with the hardware firewall in your router should be perfectly adequate.
If you really feel you must have a software firewall whynot try Comodo or kerio to see if they are any better.Both are free and well recommended on this forum.

Im running Norton as i have it free for 90 days. It came along with my new laptop.

I have switched off Nortons firewall and Windows firewall.

The laptops wireless connectin said it is connected to the internet but when i load up a page, google for example, nothing loads.

Should Zone Alarm not show a popup box asking me to allow or deny access to the Belkin router?

Connect through a LAN cable after turning off your WiFi connection. See if that works. It may well be a WiFi problem rather than a software/firewall problem. Turn your Windows Firewall back on as soon as you can.
