I have a Sonicwall TZ 170 which replaced a Linksys WRT100.  I want to tie the WRT100 to the Sonicwall TZ 170 to provide wireless access for local LAN users that do not have network drops in their offices.  

The Sonicwall is on getting its IP from the ISP automatically.  I have the DHCP setup to issue IPs from the Sonicwall on the netowrk starting at  

I have the latest firmware in the WRT100 and it configured as with DHCP off tied from the LAN port to the LAN port on the Sonicwall.  

I can currently access the LAN resources with the wireless connection but cannot get out to the internet.

How should these two devices be configured to allow me to treat the WRT100 as a wireless access point to the Sonicwall and have Internet access?
