Since installing new hardware the ip address has changed for file sharing.
Zone Alarm is blocking the file sharing
internet access from either PC is OK?
Trusted zone has changed?
Check ip config and or release/renew
I no longer run ZA just winxp firewall with no problems

The windows firewall is certainly adequate for blocking incoming intrusions but doesn't block outgoing which is only a problem if you are already compromised(trojans etc).
I have used the same antivirus for the last 12years(ca vet) and never had a virus on any machine.I sweep regularly with adaware/spybot so am pretty sure not using ZA,a product I do like,won't be an issue.
My router also has a firewall of sorts.
Is the Laptop with limited view the WiFi?
Does it behave the same hard wired?
The fact that it is the third pc makes me think ZA is still blocking .
Try with ZA removed.

This is different to free vers settings and i think this is what causes the hap-hazard way it allows/denies file access.
I have not had any experience with wireless cards, as yet,but think it may periodically switch ip addresses beyond set range.
Try posing the wi fi access question in forum seperately.
PS My network is still fine,windows firewall seems to be ok I sweep for spyware regularly and so far everything is no different to when i ran ZA.
She,who must be obeyed,doesn't complain anymore!!!
