Wireless connection shut down by Norton Internet Security?

    My main computer (OS W2K) is connected to the internet by cable. My laptop
    (OS Vista) and my brother´s desktop (OS W2K) are connected to the internet
    by Belkin wireless, the transmitter sitting on top of my main computer.

    Today my laptop started playing up, and I lost the connection for some
    reason. Thinking the program had become disconfigured, I went to look at my
    brother's setup. His computer seemed to be working fine but, when I opened
    his profile, a Norton box appeared. I couldn't close it. It offered 4
    options. The top one was in square brackets. This was the option that
    couldn't be chosen. (Sorry, I can´t remember what it said.) The other 3
    options were (I think) Home, Away, Office (?). I chose Home. The wireless
    connection has not worked since, and I can't get that Norton box to offer me
    the options again.

    Any suggestions, anybody?

    Thanks.

    JK
