Odd issues resolving websites after basic Sonicwall installation.
Posted on 2014-01-08
My problem is that I have purchased a TZ210 for the home to setup a small business. I have Verizon DSL and I was successful in getting them configured so that I had internet. However when I tried to go to ANY other website other than Google.com and Gmail, it would time out. I checked the sonicwall and it was inheriting the DNS IP's from Verizon just like the modem/router would. I then tried changing these to Google's DNS IP's of 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206, This didn't resolve either and I received the same results. I am come to my wits end as well as a couple of my buddies so right the Soniwall is out and the Verizon DSL is reset. I did reassign IP's for them giving the Verizon box 10.0.1.1 with DHCP turned off and the Sonicwall 10.0.1.254. with DHCP on. I have some experience with Sonicwalls but this is the first time I am seeing this.
Thank you for your help.
