Connecting ISP Bridge to CPE Router
Posted on 2015-02-19
Hello. I have an Ethernet over Copper circuit that terminates into an Adtran 838 Bridge. I have to use a Cisco router to connect the circuit into my firewall. My router (Cisco 1841) has two (2) FastEthernet (FE 0/0 & FE 0/1) Interfaces. FE 0/0 is programmed and connected to the CPE WAN IP of the Adtran Bridge. The other Interface (FE 0/1) is programmed to the gateway LAN subnet provided by the ISP, and connected to my firewall. My firewall is a Dell SonicWall NSA3500.
I am unable to ping the gateway of the LAN subnet provided by the ISP from behind the firewall. I can ping the IP addresses of both FastEthernet interfaces from the router console. From the router console I cannot ping anything on The Internet.
I am not a Cisco expert, but, I would imagine I need the following to happen:
1. I need the ability to ping the ISP LAN Subnet Gateway IP Address from behind my firewall.
2. I need the ability to ping anything pingable on The Internet from the router console.
Thanks in advance for any assistance offered.
