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 and, 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 with DHCP turned off and the Sonicwall with DHCP on. I have some experience with Sonicwalls but this is the first time I am seeing this.

Thank you for your help.
