    why have to disable firewall if use laptop wlan to connect to network

    I am using 5800. I setup a shared connection on my laptop, and then 5800 could connect to Internet using the wlan through wireless connection.

    But I noticed that every time, if I want the connection could be created, I have disable the firewall on the laptop. Even when using Zone Alarm as the fire wall and add the wireless network into the trusted zone, the connection could not be established if I do not shutdown the Zone Alarm.

    I would like to know if there has way to make the connection established without shutting down the firewall.
