Call SonicWall - they will help if it is a dire emergency.

If you do not know the login and password for "teh firewall" they probably can't help you other than to suggest you reset the device to factory settings.

Okay, I will start with the question about why you cannot access the web based interface:

  Perhaps a switch that is between you and the firewall is not functioning properly?  Try plugging a computer directly into one of the SonicWall ports, and then try connecting again.  

  If you still cannot get into the firewall interface, ensure you have the correct IP address, and make sure you are prefixing it with the correct protocol  (http, or httpS), and postfixing it with the appropriate port number if needed  (ie, https://192.168.0.1:8080 )  

  If this still doesn't work, try powercycling the SonicWall by unplugging it, waiting 10 seconds, and turning it back on.

  If none of these options work, then the Sonicwall device may be faulty and you need to replace it.  

  If you are able to get into the device, then troubleshoot from there and see what the problem is..


To answer the second question about getting the DSL to work with it, you will need to be able to get into the administration interface, as mentioned above, and set the WAN settings to that of DSL (as given to you by your DSL provider).  Be sure to record all the settings you make changes to so you can revert back to the T1 when it becomes available again.

Well, they will still be pointing to the old IP addresses.  You will need to change the DNS to point to the new one, as well as reconfiguring the server the website and email are hosted on to be aware they are using a new IP address if you have any IP based limitations.

If you are using a T1, then you must using DSU/CSU and some router(the DSU/CSU can often be in the router)  between your "smart jack" and your firewall. Can you supply a description of your complete setup from the point where you plug into the T1 itself, all the way through the firewall. Also, what type of alarm? Loopback, d channel, etc?

I am opting out of this question.. I highly recommend an Intro to Networking course at your local community college.
