Oh joy, yet another anti virus causing problems again. The Op might have considered mentioning the A/V installed in the first post because this problem would have been solved long ago if he mentioned that. That particular problem has been with Kapersky for a long long time now. Thanks for reporting in chewy.

Kaspersky Rocks!

I know antivirus packages can be a pain - but the correct thing to do here is - in Kaspersky click on - settings -firewall - setttings and then your add the network adapter you are using as trusted -Done! (make sure here that your network adapter is set to LOCAL).

Hope this helps!
(P.S. repair Kaspersky first before doing the above if you disabled NDIS)

I too had this problem with both a new Dell and a MacBook Pro with ZoneAlarm installed. After reading this thread I uninstalled ZoneAlarm, restarted, the wireless device was enabled, and reinstalled ZoneAlarm...all is well. What a relief.

Just want to say thanks. I had the same problem and I thought it was my built-in wireless network card which is at fault (even went out to buy a new one). Lesson of the day: Install your network drivers first before you install zone alarm...
