Cisco asa 5505 won't connect to internet

Hi Folks,

Having a nightmare here with a brand new cisco asa 5505. About 6 hours into trying to get the thing working.

Firstly windows 7 refuses to get to its https://ip/admin web interface, but i solved that by connecting from XP.

So, now I have factory reset it with the IP 10.5.0.1

I've got this simple topology:

Win XP Laptop on dhcp > ASA 5505 > Cable Modem > Internet

Now I run through the startup wizard, all seems obvious so hopefully no need to change much in there.

But I cannot get internet access and in ASDM it says "no ip address" on the outside interface. I think this is the problem I need to solve first ??

I tried setting the MAC address of the outside interface to the address of my old router in asdm, in case the ISP is securing by mac address. that didn;t work.

I wasnt sure which port address translation to use. I tried "no address translation" and also "PAT" with "use the ip address on the outside interface". Neither worked

Please help !!!!

thanks

Also whenever I try to run the startup wizard now it give me this

"This license does not allow configuring more than 2 interfaces with nameif and without a "no forward" command on this interface or on 1 interfacess) with nameif already configured"

Only way out of that is to factory reset every time I want to run startup wizard. This is a really bad experience.

Progress, but still need help:

The outside IP is now showing as the internet facing ip - good news I guess. But clients inside the firewall cannot access the internet still.

Please help if you can. thanks

I can get onto the cable modem from the laptop now, but still no internet access.

Cable modem does of course work fine direct to a pc or through a cisco 501.

The cable modems http interface log says "No Ranging Response received - T3 time out" whatever that means !

thanks

so :
please send your show route results, and also show int vlan2.

Have you plugged your pc directly into cable modem to make sure you have. Hot Line to the cable provider?

Its was half working, sort of.

When I go google.com I get the links across the top but no pictures or search box ! weird. It just hangs there for ages.

Since then its gone back to page cannot be displayed. I wonder if it is the ISP validating mac addresses. I didn't change anything between these states.

Pinging 4.2.2.4 returns no response 0/5

Pinging the modem 192.168.100.1 is fine.

When I do ipconfig/renew on the laptop, it seems to take about 2 minutes after changing any settings before i can get my ip address again

How can I ask my cisco 501 what its web facing mac address is?

Lets get that out of the equation before we go further.

I just changed the topology to this


    Laptop > Cisco ASA 5505 > Cheap Dlink Router > Virgin Modem


Now I have full internet access. So there's something about the Cisco ASA 5505 and the Virgin Modem which are incompatible when they are directly connected to each other.
 

The old architecture:
 

    Laptop > Cisco ASA 5505 > Virgin Modem


still does not work - the asa is given a web facing IP by the virgin modem but internet access is not possible.

 

If anyone knows of a configuration on the cisco that could fix this, please let me know.. thanks

It was virgin banning the mac address for some reason. Golden rule seems to be turn off the modem every time you change routers
