I have now gained access to the Watchguard and cant see anything obvious that is blocking it.

This is my physical connection at the moment.

Linux machine > 24 port switch > watchguard > netgear ADSL modem/wireless router > internet
(192.168.16.42 > 192.168.16.?? > 192.168.16.201 > ???.???.???.??? > external IP)

I think the 24 port switch ip address is 192.168.16.2. What should i be looking for in the watchguard interface as I have never used one before.

Here are some links for watchguard
http://www.fireboxsupport.com/fireware_pro.htm
http://www.watchguard.com/education/videos.asp

Did you try to change the networkcard?
To rule out the watchguard, connect the linuxbox directly to the router.

You could download a live CD, and see if you can connect using the live CD
puppy has great HW support.

Setup a fixed ip, in the range of the router, ad use the routers ip as dafault GW
If you look in wathguard, you should see the ip that is set for the internet side.

FINALLY found out what the problem was, the watchguard is licensed for a max of 25 machines, 25 of thsoe licenses were being used. I removed a DHCP lease from one of the machines and reserved that IP for my linux machine. reconnected to network and I now get complete connectivity.
'appy days
Many thanks for all the help

This is now [SOLVED]
