Hi Everyone,

I'm coming from a SonicWall world but now have inherited a Cisco 2811 that is also in front of a Cisco ASA 5520 Firewall. I was able to comb through the ASA and bypass it to troubleshoot slow access to web pages. And now I found that the 2811 has a ton of access-lists on it as well. My question is, can I temporarily disable the access-lists on the 2811 and not lose them to test the connection without access-lists? Also, does it make any sense to have the router using access-lists and have the ASA doing it's thing? Seems to me to be too many places for issues.

Thanks for any and all help!
