Shelf Life has pretty much noted all the most likely concerns.
However, this Statement confuses me:
I'm not that convinced if it's my Firewall because I have that of Norton Anti-virus and also dowloaded Zonealarm personal firewall free version.
Are you stating that you have:
Zone Alarm Firewall
Do you have:
Norton Security Suite (that also contains a firewall)
Zone Alarm Firewall
One important Setting that may need to be considered....
Zone Alarm allows the owner/user to designate the "IP Range" to be included into its Trusted Zone
"IP Range" refers to the addresses of computers that you own on your local network, which might include one or more Desktop and one or more Laptop.
Open Zone Alarm by double-clicking on its Icon in the notification area of your Tray (down by your clock)
Select - Firewall (in the left had column of the Zone Alarm panel)
In the display that comes up, you will see a listing of the IP Addresses that have permission to pass through Zone Alarm Firewall.
In the lower right corner you will see an ADD button
When you click on the ADD Button, one of the items that you can ADD is the "IP Range" which includes the IP Address of your Laptop.
Your Laptop's IP Address should be included in the listing of Trusted Zone.
Even though Shelf Life has given excellent instructions for refreshing your IP configuration,
I'm including the same information below.
I'm a "list" kind of guy and work better when things are laid out that way, so am offering it in that format to you.
On the machine that is having erratic connection, perform the following:
Start - Run - (type)cmd
this will bring up a DOS Box display with a blinking cursor
At the blinking cursor type the following commands in sequence, waiting for the procedures to complete before entering the next command:
ipconfig /release - enter <-- notice the required space before the "/"
ipconfig /renew - enter <-- notice the required space before the "/"
ipconfig /flushDNS - enter <-- notice the required space before the "/"
(Each of the above ipconfig steps may take from a few seconds to a minute or so to complete.
Wait for the blinking cursor to return before moving on to typing the next command.)
If the above does not remedy the problem, try this Next:
Download Winsockxpfix.exe to your Desktop

The graphical presentation walks the user through the entire process.
