Time Capsule

gdinunzio used Ask the Experts™
I am trying to configure an Apple Time Capsule in an office which already has a Sonicwall firewall.  I had it setup like this but something happened and the configuration was reset.  I can not get it working again.  

I would like the TC to be the wireless access point and connect to an internal switch on the LAN, which is connected to the firewall.  The TC will have a static IP.

Set the Time Capsule to Bridge Mode on Internet tab. There, you can also give it a static IP if you wish.
