The Netgear FVS124-G is a superb combo VPN firewall DSL/Cable small business router. Loads of features and Dual Wan to boot. I highly recommend it's use in small businesses But... Keeping the necessary firewall, you are missing another component in a properly segmented network, a VLAN switch. It is highly customizable and gives you the configurability and speed you are asking for. Look at it's features here: The normal network security plan is: Internet -->Firewall-->Router (or Firewall/Router)-->VLan Switch-->Individual computers or VLan subnets. Using these two components together makes a more configurable and MUCH easier to setup network than using, say, one Sonicwall, or one CISCO PIX-501-BUN-K9 (which doesn't do VLan and you have to know Pix commands) You get FREE pre-sales and FREE post-sales support from Netgear, so call them on what makes sense for your situation.

Ploblems with dmz-outside (webpage). pix

Remove this line:

static (DMZ,INSIDE) netmask

You don't need a translation going from a lower security level to a higher one. You will also need a nat line for the dmz so that pc's on the dmz will be translated outbound. The only connection that will work on the dmz is the webserver when he's sending traffic outbound with a source port of 80. Something like:

nat (DMZ) 101

Other than that, it looks like it should be working. You've got permission, a route, and a translation. Maybe "clear local-host" to get rid of any bad xlates and try again. Check debg level syslogs, run packet captures, "clear asp drop" then "show asp drop" after an attempt?

Site to site VPN between Checkpoint UTM 1 R62 and Cisco pix /Netscreen

I couple of points:

PIX has a few dislikes...

1. Pix does not like class A address, make sure you are using B or C.
2. The VPN subnet always has to be differant to the LAN.
3. Has to have a working DNS server.
4. Add static route, and last resort to main ethernet port that has the DNS & R62. (or 2 if on differant sub)

Hope this helps.

DMZ setup

Is there a setting in the software to select the IP address for the DMZ? I'm not sure about the firewall, but most routers need you to configure the software to actually show which IP on your network is allowed DMZ.
