Yes. But then I have to either specify, network address and subnet mask, or "enter computers by name (www.symantec.com) or by internet address(xxx.xxx.x.x)"

the xxx.xxx.x.x is normally 192.168.0.xxx with xxx differentiating between the two computers, as my laptop is 192.168.0.100 on my network, but on the internet it has the same IP as my desktop and on my network the desktop is 192.168.0.101 to find the one for each specific computer go start > run > type cmd > then type ipconfig and hit enter.

Very important section on firewall configuration
*** 3rd party firewall configuration ***
If you are running a 3rd party firewall like ZoneAlarm or Norton Firewall, you must configure it to recognize and allow locally assigned IP addresses.

(An IP address will look something like 192.168.1.1. Typically
- Linksys IP addresses for the PCs will begin at 192.168.1.100
- Netgear IP addresses will begin at 192.168.1.2

You must configure the firewall to allow IP addresses for the range that you are being assigned. (E.g Linksys, then allow 192.168.1.100 to 192.168.1.150)

You may want to manually "reduce" the IP range in the router to match the number of devices you have
