Watchguard X5, bridged netopia 3340 modem/router gateway wont take...
Posted on 2006-03-25
Hi, I have a client with a stickey/stadic/pppoe dsl connection. the netopia router is in bridged mode, and the watchguard x5 is handeling the pppoe connection. Here in southern cal the address you get from the isp using pppoe/stickey/stadic is the same as the default gateway. I didn't give it much thought untill I tried to setup a watchguard router on one.
Problem is, the watchguard wont allow the ip and the gateway to be the same address, if auto over rides the dg address with 10.20.30.40. Tech support was baffled, and didnt understand pppoe/stadic/stickey. I was forced to put the pppoe back on the netopia, and live with it, but thats not what I wanted.
Question: has anyone else had expierence with this, or have any knoledge of it???
any help would be appreciated.
