Help, we just installed a linksys wireless router so that we could add our laptop. The only way we could get it up and working was to turn Zone Alarm and Norton Security off. Are there settings we can choose in Zone Alarm and Norton so that we still have firewalls with Linksys?

Wow!!! Your system still runs with ZA AND NU on it! ;)
Personally I would remover NU and ZA. Normal NAT or if your router has a SPI firewall would make your sytstem SOOO much cleaner and faster! If you are behind a router..( private IP scheme vs public ) and your ports aren't wide open, then you will most likely be safer than with the software firewalls, which try to turn your computer into its own router, thus causing all kind of headaches.
If you INSIST on using these "software firewalls" :tazz: then I would look into a possible NAT / IP issue. Does ZA/NU popup any warnings regarding any IP changes or ports?
