new internet service - sonicwall setup

Hello,

I am coming to a new location where we are adding new internet service.  The problem is that the firewall is a sonicwall network security appliance and I'm not sure how to configure the device to the new parameters.  

I'm guessing these are not plug and play.  Is there a tutorial for these devices or can anyone coach me as to what I should focus on.  Just at a glance, it would seem I need to go under Network > Interfaces > Select the right Interface and then adjust the settings.

Is there something I am missing?

You are in the Right place. It is Network -> interface. Just edit the interface , select the Zone as WAN and enter the required parameters. SonicWALL will automatically take care of the routing and the NAT.

In addition to changing the Network Interface setting, you might also have address objects that reference the wan that also must be changed.

Look under Firewall => Address Objects in the "Address Objects" section. Under the "Address Detail" column you are looking for anything with a WAN ip that also must be changed. Note that you can sort this column by clicking on the heading.
