Your Airport card should function fine with any 802.11b or g wireless base.

As for zonealarm, that's software only on the Winbows box, so it won't affect you.

I agree, it should work fine, zonealarm is a program on the pc to protect windows. Your mac doesn't need protecting and will not need 3rd party software to protect it. His zonealarm on his pc wont affect your mac.

it should function fine without a hitch, im using a Linksys router right now with my powerbook with no problems....

its always good to have the hardware firewall as well as the OS firewall on as well though just to be safe
