    I'm having trouble setting up my Linksys Wireless router. Apparently, it comes setup to be plugged directly to the cable modem, but it isn't, it goes to a SonicWall firewall first. The problem is, it blocks me from getting to my firewall. How do I set it so that is sees the firewall as being on the local network?

    Can you put the firewall box after the router and connect the network to the firewall?

    No, the firewall has one LAN and one WAN connection. For now, I just hooked the modem directly to the router. It has a firewall built in, I just hate to lay a $300 firewall aside.
