Question about SonicWALL TELE2 Firewall
Speedstream 4200 modem was bridged. Setup PPPOE authentication in network settings. Rebooted all devices. Try to click connect and it just hangs there. Looking at the logs, it does not even state pppoe failed authentication. It just says broadcast packets dropped. I have tested the modem in bridge mode using Win XP and I connect immediately. Any suggestions would be extremely helpful. Sonicwall will not support it, and the ISP will not help either. Our company usually works with Watchguard units, and I've recently config'ed several of these for PPPOE with out issue. This sonicwall is junk.... Help!
Is there a reason why the Sonicwall needs to do the PPPOE auth? You should be able to let the modem do the PPPOE connection and have the Sonicwall behind it. The Sonic wall will get a private IP address. Andy

Tips for a great answer:
D-Link routers use the connection from your Internet service provider to create a wireless network for the various Wi-Fi-enabled devices in your home or office.
Once the router is installed, you can truly enjoy the portable capabilities of your laptop or other wireless device.
D-Link routers have a straightforward installation process, despite the advanced technology behind wireless equipment.
So there is no reason to wait around for a technician to help you install your wireless equipment.
Remove the cable that is attached to the "Internet" port on the rear of your DSL or cable modem.
Plug the Ethernet cable into the "Internet" port on the modem and plug the other end of the cable into the "Internet" port on the rear of the D-Link router.
Attach the power adapter to the port on the rear of the router and plug the adapter's cord into a outlet.
Remove the power cord from your modem and wait 10 seconds before plugging it back in. This will reinitialize your modem and force it to establish a connection to the D-Link router.
Your router will immediately begin distributing a wireless network with the "D-Link" network name.
Connect your computer to one of Ethernet ports on the rear of the router and open a Web browser.
Type "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar and press "Enter." Enter "admin" into the username field and type "admin" again into the password field.
Click "OK" to open the wireless configuration page.
Click "Wireless Security Setup Wizard" to create a wireless password for your router's network. Click "Apply" to save the changes to the router's settings.
hope this helps
