Is anyone Familiar with this router any help would be great (Watchguard, Firebox X750e) I need to reconfigure it to resetup all the Ip addresses because we got a new T1 line and the ip Addresses have changed. Do I need to change anything on the router or does in automatically change and adjust itself? The company who makes it takes foreverto get back to you to give tech support.

Well it is easy to reconfigure provided you have all the needed access and software.

For X750e we use a management software called Watchguard System Manager (WSM); you need to log in to the firebox using READONLY passphrase.
Launch Policy Manager; go to Network->Interfaces; go to External tab; change the IP settings as the need be.
In Policy Manager; go to File->save to firebox; provide the READWRITE or CONFIGURATION passphrase and thats it! :)

Please let me know if you need more details.

Thank you.
