Actiontec wireless GT701-WG and Sonicwall firewall issues
Posted on 2004-09-27
I'm setting up a small network and I'm having some problems getting the Actiontec wireless GT701-WG modem gateway and Sonicwall TZ 170 to work together.
I'm running a windows 2003 server running DHCP and DNS services. The DSL modem is a little different than the typical modem. It's also a wireless gateway, runs NAT, and a firewall. I disabled DHCP on it and ran it through a switch. Set my network so that the modem gateway was my network default gateway(192.168.0.1) and things run well. My LAN can access the internet.
To set it up to work through the firewall I made the physical connections and gave the modem/ gateway a different IP addess (192.168.0.5). I diabled NAT and set the firewall setting to low (I don't think this can be disabled). I ran the network wizard on the firewall. This included setting it up to receive a dynamic IP address from the ISP via PPPoe (User name and password).
The firewall works (I could ping it) but I get no activity from the internet on my network. On the firewall settings I see I'm not getting an IP from the WAN. I checked the user name and password and everything seems to correct.
I also tried setting the modem/ gateway for DMZ forwarding to my firewall (192.168.0.1). Still didn't work.
Any suggestions would help. Thanks in advance!
