SonicWall wireless with SonicPoints and a VLAN

The Guest wireless network is not working properly. The SSID is broadcasting, you can connect to it, you pull an IP address from the DHCP server on the SonicWall but you can't ping the SonicWall (even though I enabled ping). You can't ping anything else either. I would think if it could pull a DHCP address then it is able to talk to the DHCP server correct?  The DHCP server shows addresses that it has handed out.

Oh, I see what you are saying but when I get a DHCP address of 10.0.0.22 and the SonicWall interface it 10.0.0.1 and I have ping enabled on 10.0.0.1 but I can't ping 10.0.0.1

I forgot to add I have two SSIDs configured. The first one works fine. It hands out LAN addresses from the DHCP server on the LAN and I can access everything fine. The network that isn't working is a sub interface on the WLAN using VLAN 10.

Check if ICMP is blocked on that interface, ping uses ICMP which may need enabling in the firewall rules.

Yeah, on the SonicWall you can define if an interface can be pinged. I have enabled that,

I understand and forgive me I only ever worked with the larger Sonicwall models, where pinging an interface means just that. So you have WAN interface and it is ping able but without ICMP rules configure the FW would block what is behind from being pinged.

I found out that the 10.0.0.1 device/MAC address is in the wrong VLAN. When I show the MAC address table in the switch it shows in VLAN 1 and not VLAN 10 which is why I can't connect to it. I'm going to ask another question that is more Netgear/VLAN related.
