Does anyone know how to configure a watch guard firebox x10e with and adsl router and a small network.

i have tried resetting the router twice and still cant get it to connect to the external network.  when i enter the details in the manual configuration as i have a static ip address it wont accept them.  and ive tried changing the range of the router and using the routers ip address in this configuration and nothing will work.

so any help would be greatly appreciated

have you set a route from your internal network to the router in the firebox?
can you ping the router from the firebox?

Is the router in Bridged OR routed mode?
Should be bridging which passes all IP control to your firebox.

Also, what I typically do before installing a firebox is set up a laptop with the configuration of what the firewall will be, plug it straight into your ISP's router, then see if I can get on the internet.  If you can't, then the firewall is not the issue.  Who is your ISP?

eventually got it going myself by removing all anti-virus from my pc and setting it up within its own network and then added it into my work network with the settings in place
