Question Connecting Linksys router with Smoothwall Firewall


Hi,

I have a wireless router with PSK security connected to my Smoothwall firewall but I want to remove the password and leave my wireless open. Do you guys recommend connecting the wireless router straight to the cable modem and then connect the smooth firewall to the router to prevent wireless users to ping and attack my local network?
Thank you!

I would recommend just removing the password on your wireless. Your smoothie box handles the purple interface (what they call wireless interface) quite nicely.

Only open pinholes for what is absolutely needed on your green (internal) network and you should be fine.
