    Hi! Happy New Year!!

    I am studing for CCSP certification so I purchased a PIX 501 on eBay. I have been playing around with it and would like to use it as my firewall for learning purposes.

    I currently am using a WRT router using DD-WRT firmware. I was wondering how I could configure this to be my Wireless router and DHCP server and use the pix as the firewall. Is this possible? I have searched and found no info about this type of setup? Any info would be helpful.

    the easy way to get most of it done is to plug the pix into a switch port on the wrt; instant wireless-wired bridge. however, getting dhcp to work right would require configuring it to hand out the pix's ip as the gateway address to all the clients; something that i dont think is possible with the standard firmware.
    perhaps there is a more complete solution in one of the various 3rd party firmwares, but im not familiar enough with them to say which one.
