I am trying to install a PIX 501 to our network. Replaceing an old linksys.
I went through the setup and plugged in the static IP of the PIX from our ISP and the gateway
IP which is the address of the router.
PiX: xxx.xxx.xxx.6
Router: xxx.xxx.xxx.5
The PIX is showing the Router as .4 and I cannot get online with it.
Computers are connecting to it because they are getting their IP address via DHCP.
I cannot see anything on the PDM that allows you to change that IP.
How do I get this changed?

If you used the subnet mask 255.255.255.252, then .4 is simply the network identifier. This is normal behavior.
Inf the PDM, Configuration, System, Interfaces, does it show the proper IP address?
On the Home page, does it show the proper IP address for the interface with green UP arrow?

If you can't get online, it could be something else. Can you post your config?

I will have to check that out.
The info in the PDM shows the proper address  with the green UP arrow.
I had to hook up the old one again so I'll have to get back to you.

It was something in the config of the firewall that was preventing access to thr internet.

Once I got it configured correctly I was alll set
