No connectivity with Cisco ASA 5505

Last Modified: 2012-05-05

I did a reset on the cisco asa 5505. This helped me restore conectivity. But i noticed that now it has assigned an IP to the (outside) interface usign DHCP. If i go and edit this then make it static and put that same IP, i lose conection again. I have to make it dhcp to have conection.

Why wont it let me assigned the static ip? i got 5 ips i can use but none work if i specify static ip.

On the Interface status says (when it works)
Inside -no ip address-line DOWN link:up
outside -dhcp configured- line DOWN link:up
