smoothwall, linksys router, dsl


I am using a Comtrend CT-500 adsl modem with a static IP, a linksys BEFW11S4 router and am trying to install smoothwall 2.0. Right now I have a green and red config with the static IP setup in the network settings. I am trying for a connection between the modem and the router right? therefore from adsl modem to smooth red, and green to WAN? settings? I have read the complete admin guide and without a response here, I'm doomed...

The question here is, why do you two have a hardware router in addition to the SmoothWall? The SmoothWall takes the place of a hardware router like the LinkSys. If you are trying to use the hardware routers for wireless access, then you should get a wireless access point, not a router/access point combination (like most home devices are).

I notice you have Smoothwall listed as your distro over there by your name.
Smoothwall is not a regular distribution. Back when I was using smoothwall, I had it loaded on a separate computer. I didn't use it as a regular linux box. Only as a gateway/router/firewall.

U must have configured something wrong then b/c the setup is fine adsl modem with static ip on red port. Geen port is setup for dhcp. What you need to to is setup up another static ip for the geen side. Then go to the linksys configuration and I am not sure on this but you can change the mode that the linksys works ie:gateway,something else and have it use the static address from the green port. This should work fine for you as it workd fine for me.

Why dont you put the smoothwall behind the linksys and have it just secure your wired side and let wep do take care of the wirless.

I am new my self and have only used smoothwall once as a test. I can help you if you need any more help.
