can't navigate to setup firewall

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
I'm building a clean install of XP Pro from a Dell upgrade disk.. It's going behind a whitelisting firewall so I'm doing the entire build without internet access. I have a thumb drive with all the software setup files... so I get the OS installed, the software installed, the drivers installed and I try to navigate to the hardware firewall, https://192... etc.. IE won't do it. Maybe it's because I've never completed the network setup or something.. I install Chrome because its' always done everything better and with less hassle.. it won't install.. I install Firefox and it won't navigate to the hardware firewall either.. I check my network connections and it says I have a 1394 connection and it's connected and working ok... What's up with this?
