I just upgraded my firewall from a TZ210 to a TZ300 wireless. I was able to connect directly to the new device with the IP 192.168.168.168. from a computer I had unconnected from the network and changed the IP to 192.168.1.1. to match my current network configuration. That all worked great and the new firewall is up and going. I appear to have some port issues inside my LAN and wanted to see my settings on my old firewall. The problem is I can't connect to it. I'm unplugging the network cable from a PC and directly plugging it into firewall but and connect to the 192.168.1.1 but says it can't find it. I don't want to reset it as I want to see the old settings. What am I doing wrong?

I've tried plugging into the LAN port, the WAN port and just about all the others!

You may need to try a crossover cable to connect the computer to the router (LAN port)

boot it into safe mode and it will get the old ip back 192.168.168.168, you can then connect to it with no problems and look at the existing config

Was the old Sonicwall handling DHCP at the time that you removed it from the network? If not, then you need to give your PC a static IP address in the 192.168.1.x range. If it was, then you would be better off doing what Kylo has suggested.

That was it. I changed my IP on the computer to 192.168.1.5 and was able to see the SonicWALL. Thanks all for your help!!
