Setting up wireless router behind a pix firewall
Posted on 2004-11-03
I have recently installed a PIX 501 firewall and a wired switch attached to one of the PIX LAN ports. The PIX is configured to assign DHCP addresses to network users. I now have a Linksys wireless router ( WRV54G) that I need to connect to provide wireless access. The wired and wireless will be part of the same network and subnet.
My questions are:
1. Where do I attach the wireless router, i.e. from the Linksys WAN port to one of the PIX LAN ports?
2. Do I still need to fill out the WAN details in the Linksys config?
3. Will the PIX still assign DHCP addresses to wireless users or do I confiure the Linksys to assign addresses to wireless users?
I hope this all makes sense. Thanks in advance.
