First off don't plug anything into the plug that says Console. Next you have 5 X ports X0- X5 If your just connecting a desktop computer you should plug the ethernet cable from your desktop to the X3 jack, and so one if you are connecting directly to the Router. If you are going to use wireless connection then you don't need to plug anything into the back of the Sonicwall 205, you'll need to log into the router and assign a password so you can log on from your remote device.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect your laptop to one of the "wired" ports. Then, open a command-line prompt, and enter 'IPCONFIG'.
What IP-address is shown as the "gateway" ?
It should be "192.168.something.something".
Use that IP-address to try to login.
Connect to it with a ethernet cable and try again. Since you reset the device it won't have your wireless network configured. Since you are no longer connecting to it via wireless, you are getting the 169... address. Once you connect to it with the ethernet cable you should get an address from the device. Then go to http://192.168.1.1 and user the user name admin and password admin. You should be able to reconfigure your wireless network from there. http://www.sapido.com.tw/EN/faqrb1632.htm
You just need to clear your browser's cache file. If you are using IE, just click Tools, Internet Options. Under the Browsing History, click Delete. It will present another window and then check all boxes and then hit Delete on the bottom. For Mozilla Firefox, click Tools and then click Clear Private Data. Again, check all boxes and then click Clear Data Now.
Have you checked the subnet? i.e. 255.255.225.248, make sure both PC and firewall are set the same.
Check the firewall settings on the PC, for port 80, 8080 & 443 and the ip address of the unit if you connecting with web access.
Try to up the IP on the PC to 169.254.236.185, it some times does not like being before the device.
Aslo, some times the PC needs to have the network port reset, as windows keeps the old IP address, but shows the new. The quick way to check this, is to disable the network connection and then enable it again.
