Email seems to send fine on the laptop! So it's probably not the router or Eudora. Which is good, because I've done all I can with them, really.
(It still could be the router, as the problem is intermittent, but let's grasp at the Straws of Hope, shall we?)
Just for kicks, try uninstalling zonealarm 3.7 and reinstalling the older version they posted in the forums. You've already downloaded it. Make sure you clean out reg keys and everything; 3.7 seems sticky.
Consider doing the same on the laptop, too, so we don't have to restart it every time after establishing a connection re: win2k proggie startup problems.
Thanks me. I appreciate it.
No problem, me, happy to help.
