I just installed a new wireless g mini pci card into my laptop, it's driver, and the wifi connect utility, and for the most part the install was fairly flawless after I figured out the intricasies of the firewall and adding program access, but now for some reason, when I restart the laptop, the card will connect to the home router, but not to the internet.

When I shut down my zone alarm firewall, it connects to the internet fine, and when I restart the firewall, The connection continues to work as normal untill I turn off the computer and restart it again.

I've already alowwed permission for the wifi connect program to connect to the internet, and I'll try to allow the wifi connect program checkmark access to the internet (allow/trusted) instead of blue question mark and see if that helps, but any suggestions would be helpful. thanks

I've tried all versions of zone alarm, and they don't seem to make any difference

Operating System:Windows 2000 Pro
