I want to use my tablet's 3G connection as a hotspot for my laptop.
The tablet (Acer Iconia W4) has Windows 8.1 Pro 32-bit on it and currently no firewall or antivirus (still setting it up as it's new). I'm using Win 8.1's built-in hotspot fuctionality aka Internet Connection Sharing to share its 3G mobile broadband connection with the laptop. This works perfectly fine when ZoneAlarm is not running on my laptop (like right now as I'm posting this), but stops working soon after I start ZoneAlarm. After I close ZoneAlarm the connection still won't return until I toggle the hotspot on/off in the tablet.
The laptop has Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition on it, and ZoneAlarm works fine with my Android device hotspots, but not with this new Windows device.
