How to configure a sonicwall TZ200 to work with a Netgear DG834 ADSL Router

Last Modified: 2013-02-28
I was advised to purchase a TZ200 so i did, for blocking Social Networking sites etc for a small company. After attempting to set this up 2 days ago i still haven't got it up and running yet and i was pretty much stumped just how difficult i was finding it even after reading several articles on installation. Bassically all i need it for really is Internet content filtering. Anyway i will list in detail the office setup as best i can and would appreciate any help at all to move me in the right direction. My Subnetting skills are very poor so detailed information would be great - Thanks.

1x Netgear ADSL Router DG834 - ISP Demon and it assigns 1x static IP address for the company: DHCP is enabled on the router and NAT
Router public IP

1x 24 port Netgear switch that connects the 10x XP pro clients and Netgear Router.

1x Windows Server 2k3 acting as Domain controller and file server only
Server public IP - all clients -

How do i go about placing the firewall onto this setup? someone mentioned bridging the router but this means i need to make changes to the router which i dont think it supports. Is it possible to do without bridging?   Can anyone give details please

Thanks in advance
