Firewall suddenly preventing internet connection

Effective the first week of April, the personal firewall prevents internet connections. This is a new behavior. Turn firewall off, internet accessible. Turn it on and internet can't be reached. Ping fails in this condition. This is on an HP dv7 6163us and had been working correctly for 11 months, 3 weeks, and 2 days since the machine was purchased. Any suggestions? .... bob

Re: Firewall suddenly preventing internet connection
