Installing firewall behind WAG54G - Q

    I'm installing a Watchguard X15 firewall behind a WAG54G - my problem is the firewall requires the static IP address, although the LAN interface of the WAG54G is set to 192.168.x.x etc. and won't work under any other configuration.

    Basically I want to disable routing and use the WAG54G purely as a DSL modem. Is this possible, and if so how do I do it?

    Many thanks

    Why not just eliminate the WAG54G, and connect the Watchguard directly to the DSL modem? I suspect the watchguard won't connect to the 192.168.x.x network because it "knows" that that address is reserved:

    Hope this helps,

    I don't have a seperate modem - I'm just using the WAG54G. I'll get one if needed, but it seems a waste to chuck away a perfectly good box if it can be made to work just as a modem. Cheers for the answer though.
