    I need a little guidance on this; your help is appreciated!

    I’m trying to connect a Netscreen 5XP firewall (2 Interfaces) with a Linksys Wireless Access Point Router (BEFW11v4) to my broadband DSL connection.

    Starting from the Internet:
    First comes the DSL Modem, then the Netscreen FW, next the Linksys Router.

    I set the Trusted Interface of the Netscreen Firewall with

    I connect the DSL modem to the Untrusted interface on the FW. I setup the interface to use PPOE (on Untrust) and to use NAT on the Trusted Interface. I plug my laptop into the Trust interface w/ appropriate network configuration, test the Internet and it works.

    Now, I remove my laptop from the FW and connect the linksys to Trusted on the FW and the WAN Port (on Linksys). I configure the router for “router mode†instead of gateway. I configure the WAN Connection Type to use static IP using, subnet mask and use (FW) as the default gateway. For LAN’s IP on the Linksys I use and enable DHCP which works. I plug my laptop into the Linksys and get an IP address. I can’t get to the Internet. I can ping and However, I can’t ping the (FW trust Interface).

    I’ve tried adding static routes, but haven’t had any luck. Here is the routing table autoconfiged by Linksys

    Destination LAN IP Subnet Mask Default Gateway Hop Count Interface 1 WAN 1 LAN 1 WAN

    Thanks for your help.
