Define only your LAN IP range (i.e. 192.168.x.x) on the Trusted Zone and make sure no incoming/outgoing is being blocked. I had a LAN last year and this worked fine for me.

It's still undecided for the moment. Yeah, I think the ad-blocking is a part of ZoneAlarm Plus or Pro (both not free).

You do not want any ports to be open because this could cause your pc to be port scanned which in turn encourages hackers to try to hack your PC. FYI, before I had a hardware firewall, ZoneAlarm picked up so many port scans of my PC that it was unreal and caused my PC to slow down a bit.
