Just wanted to post a heads-up. There is a conflict between Microsoft's update KB951748 and ZoneAlarm. Something about that update will cause ZoneAlarm to block your browsers from internet access and ultimately shut your connection down. ZoneAlarm is recommending that you uninstall this update as a fix for right now. Turning your ZoneAlarm setting down to "medium" will also fix this problem, but obviously will reduce the level of security provided by the program.
Once again, the old computer illiterate has a question for you computer savvy Ws. We use a Netgear Wireless-G router for the laptop at home. My son just brought home his new Apple laptop from school and wants to use the internet.
