Why is Firewall Blocking all LAN connections for Laptop, Mac, Xbox360 etc, local connection only.

After the recent McAfee updates to 2011 from 2010 version none of our others Pc's, iMac or games consoles can get on line.  We are still a bit old fashioned here, only one connecting at a time via the ethernet port on XP SP3 PC. it all worked Ok before  and even now If I turn off McAfee Firewall and use windows firewall all are ok. i have added the appropriate IP settings for home network in the firewall, shared the internet connection and all settings are as before. I tried using a laptop as a host computer using our existing ADSL modem Thompson speedtouch 330 as I thought this could be the problem but all can connect instantly this way. I have restored to factory settings three times now!! Still the same problem the default ports are open in the firewall I am beat!  I have an unopened Norton 360 which came with the laptop and am tempted to jumpship and remove McAfee. Any help would be appreciated.
