I recently installed zone alarm ( free) on main computer, which has internet sharing with 3 others on home network, using usb broadband modem.
I could no configure ZA to accept this and removed, system works fine, worried no firewall, would sygate firewall work

In Zone alarm you have to add your network IP addresses to the trusted zone element of the firewall

Not sure whether Sygate would work. Why don't you try it?

Also go to Firewall>Main>Advanced to see the settings to allow you to share the internet connection
