Hello, just a quick question.
I am using a Belkin wireless connection between two computers in the same house and each time my computer starts up sometimes its connects and other times it drops the connection on my side.

I have looked at Belkin troubleshooting guild and search this forum for information about this problem. I am connecting to the internet via the main family computer.

Can this be due to zone alarm? Both computers have this on. Or is it just one of those things that I will have to get use to?

It is most likely due to zone alarm. It has to be set up correctly on both computers to allow connection between them. Sometimes even if they are set up right, they will still have problems.

Let's experiment to make sure it is zone alarm that is causing this, shut it down on both computers just for a little while. To do this, right-click on the zone alarm icon in the system tray (next to the time) and click "exit" or "close" or whatever the case may be.

There are many other firewalls which are very similar, but may allow your connection. Let me know how the experiment goes.
