    How is the Ext HDD attached to your PC - local USB cable or over your network? It sounds like over a network. If it is, then make sure your LAN network and any mapped drives are set to "Trusted" in the Firewall>Zones settings.

    This is how mine are set and I can access all mapped drives on my network: http://i34.tinypic.com/ka4sp5.jpg

    Great! Glad you got it working.

    As far as securing the network (wireless?) the default ZoneAlarm settings have always worked well for me at keeping intruders out of my PC. Never had a problem.

    But if you have a wireless network and are looking to secure it so other users can't access your broadband connection, then that's a general wireless network issue (not a ZoneAlarm issue) and depends on the type of equipment you have.

    I have found http://www.dslreports.com/ to be an excellent source of information regarding networking and ISP's. This user's story was a great example of how your wireless broadband connection can be stolen: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r233...From-Actiontec

    Some useful links to help you get set up correctly (simply look for a link to
