Hi I have just moved the Pix I hope to learn on to be part of my wireless network and I want some advice how to open it up to test the connectivity and get it connected to the internet via the wireless.

Current Setup is laptop with wireless connecting to AP - connecting to Pix inside int. connecting to DSL modem via ethernet outside int.

The DSL modem is a DHCP Server.
The AP is a DHCP client of the PIX.

Help me connect the laptop anyway via this equipment - thanks.

It looks like you have everything you need for basic connectivity.
So, your AP gets a 10.0.0.x ip address. What IP address does your laptop get?
What kind of AP is it? Or is it a wireless router?

Have you looked to see what kind of IP address you're getting from the modem, if any? Could it be trying to get a 10.0.0.x address, too?

You might want to change your telnet statement if you want to telnet to it..
> telnet inside  <== that's the inside interface IP, not good choice..
   telnet inside

AP is a US Robotics as is the DSL modem

IP Addresses looked like this

Laptop(static - AP (static ---------Pix inside Int (1) (Pix static) --------Pix outside int (0)(DHCP client me thinks? how to check what it got?) -------DSL Modem (

The DNS has been picked up successfully by the pix from the DSL ( I can see this in the config above).

You can check the PIX's ip address with "sho interface"
What do you get on the laptop in the IPCONIFIG for default gateway and DNS?
Do you get as the gateway and dns  -, ?

Can you ping the modem from the laptop?
