    I've just bought a Netgear DG834 and got it set up on my main PC with a view to connecting my daughters via wireless at the weekend.

    My question is do i still need to have ZoneAlarm installed now that i have the router or can i safely uninstall it and rely on the routers hardware firewall?

    Provided you exercise some common sense, it isn't necessary - just might be a good idea.
