    XP Home-- SP 3

    Howdy. For years I've had my desktop and then a wireless laptop which was
    able to access some files on my desktop. Now I have two such laptops.

    All of a sudden, neither laptop can find the network path.

    When I disable Zone Alarm from either laptop, it works fine.


    I still seem to have the correct addresses listed in the Trusted Zone, but I
    don't know how to check that for sure? Do I use ipconfig/all on my desktop
    and use those addresses for ZA on my laptops (ie: put them in the trusted
    zone)?

    I THINK those addresses are correct.

    Could there be a problem with the latest Windows Updates interfering with ZA
    and creating this problem. You may recall there was a similar problem where
    one could not even get internet access. They then issued a patch?

    I'm just not sure why this suddenly happened, nor how to dx. this problem.

    Any suggestions/guidance would be appreciated.
