No Wireless Connection after installation of Zone Alarm

I have a wireless network at home using a D-Link DSL D-664T Wireless ADSL Router operating on channel 6 802.11g with 128-bit WEP Security. I have a IBM Thinkpad R30 running Win 98SE which has been connected to this network for a long time without any problems. This machine has Zone Alarm installed on it. My Dell Axim X30 also connects to this network without any problems.

This week I tried to connect my new Toshiba Satellite Pro M-30 with the Intel Pro/Wireless 2200BG network adapter to this network. After some initial glitches it connected to the network. I have connected the laptop to public non-secure Wi-Fi networks without any problems. However, after downloading and installing the latest version of Zone Alarm, the computer does not connect to the internet. It however indicates excellent network connection and I am also able to access the Router configuration utility wirelessly.

Can anyone help me in sloving this problem? Thanks!

Uninstalled, but no luck.

The router denotes an online connection on switching on the computer, but no pages are opened in explorer. Any issues with the XP SP2 Firewall?

No improvement

I downloaded the fix and installed it but the wireless internet connection is not working still. Installing the fix set off another message where Activesync is not able to recognise the COM (IR/USB) ports.

Not a clear picture here.

I can't know your setup and supplied the usual cures. At this time its possible some hardware took a leap of death, but if this was my machine I'd look to remove the ethernet/wifi device and try a fresh install of it's drivers (XP has a remove driver feature).
