Auto update feature changed?

Specs: Vista SP1, 3.0Ghz,2Ghz
I have Norton Antivirus. When I had just DSL with no router, the program would go out and automatically update itself with new virus definitions. Since I added a wireless router, I notice the program does not do this anymore. Looks like I have to hit Live Update and do it manually. Is there a port on the firewall in the router that needs to be open? Or do I have to allow this program access to the internet? Thanks.

You have to allow it to have access, but the router is not what controls that.

I have ZoneAlarm firewall and hardware firewall in the router. Will both cooperate without conflicts? Is it enough to just name the program involved or should you add the port numbers also? Thanks.
Note: I don't think I have the router firewall enabled.
