wireless connection problem

I have been sharing my broadband connection for a few months with my sons pc whilst my pc is the host for the connection.
Recently this has stopped working, my son thinks it is down to a setting on my system as his pc will search for the wirelsss connection but cannot find it.
I am running XP with Avast anti virus with Zone alarm firewall, any suggestions please?

ur pc could have updated to SP2 for XP and turned on the windows firewall by defualt, check under the network settings for this (you will see a small padlock on the connection) also check to see if ZA is uptodate, if not update it.. or uninstall it and use sygate as tis better

I have checked the firewall and it is off, zone alarm is up to date so am still baffled. I am looking at sygate but not sure if that may help as the wireless connection did work fine with Zonealarm for some months
