How to setup zywall 10w firewall gateway


Question: Could anyone give me instructions on how to set up a zywall 10w firewall gateway. I have tried connecting it to a Netopia ADSL router but I cannot get on the internet. When I disconnect the Zywall I have internet access no problem

I would get hold of the manual first or install CD.

You have to set it up as DHCP or fixed Ip depending on your router, and may even require cloning the MAC address in some cases.

I hope this helps !

Hi SysExpert
Thank you for your advice. I have downloaded the manual and tried to follow the instructions but I am afraid my networking knowledge is limited so I have not succeeded in establishing a network connection through the firewall. I cannot even ping the firewall or the ADSL router. The firewall is assigning an IP address to my PC ok. I AM LOST. Can you help me

The internal ip of my router is 192.169.1.254 and the IP of the firewall is 192.168.1.1. Could this be causing the problem. I do not have a fixed IP from my ISP.

When I was setting it up I let the firewall accept a lot of the settings from the ISP such as the IP address assigned by the ISP.
I think that you need to set it up as DHCP ( not a fixed IP address )

Did you try that ?

Yes I set it up as DHCP and the Zywall box is assigning the pc an IP from it pool of IPs starting at 192.168.1.33. Yet I cannot ping the Zywallbox that has an IP of 192.168.1.1.
