First time to set up this type of router.

Although I have set up multiple routers in the past, they have all been hooked to a line that needed termination for example a T1.  I would set up the serial connection with my IP then give my internal interface a public IP and then use my PIX as my first internal IP and gateway through it to the router.  I have switched ISP's and we are using a wireless connection.  The ISP basically handed me CAT5.  I am setting p the router as well as a new ASA appliance and could use some help with the configuration.  I have a block of public IP addys but do I assign a private to the internal interface then send my ASA to that?  So I still gateway through my ASA?

If they are handing off to you in Ethernet i would say you don't need the router and plug directly into your ASA.

Well I thought about a layer 2 switch instead of the router but need the room for growth.  I have the router running and will do the ASA tomorrow.  Seems to be not such a big deal.

I did it all.  Through the router and the to ASA.  All is working as should be.

For months I had no idea how to 'discover' the IP address of the other end of a link (without asking someone who knows), and it drove me batty. Think about it. You can't use Cisco Discovery Protocol (CDP) because it's not implemented on the ASAs.…
