SonicWALL Wireless Configuration Wizard To access SonicWALL’s Wireless Configuration Wizard, log on to the SonicWALL router, then click the Wireless button found within the left navigation bar of SonicWALL’s Web-based management interface. The Wireless Status page will be displayed. Click the Wireless Wizard button that appears toward the top-right of the screen.
The SonicWALL Wireless Configuration Wizard will appear. Click the Next button to proceed with the wireless administration utility.
The wizard’s first step will appear as seen in Figure A. Step one addresses wireless local area network (WLAN) network settings. You must specify the WLAN IP address and subnet mask before continuing. In addition, a checkbox is provided for enabling Windows networking support between the wired local area network and the WLAN. Be sure to check the box to enable communication between the LAN and WLAN. Then, click Next.

Step two requires setting the Service Set ID (SSID), radio mode, country code and channel. The SonicWALL wizard provides a blank field for specifying the SSID. The default SSID is sonicwall. Consider changing the SSID to a value that reveals nothing about the organization or office in which it is deployed. I typically deploy SSIDs as HomeNetwork and BusinessNetwork, as doing so provides potential hackers with less information about a network (particularly in more heavily populated areas such as apartments and office parks).
On most SonicWALL routers, including the popular TZ 170 wireless model, three radio modes are available: 2.4GHz 802.11 b, 2.4GHz 802.11g or 2.4GHz 802.11g and b Mixed mode. Using the provided drop-down menu, select the mode you wish to use within your organization.

The last item to configure within Step 2: WLAN 802.11b/g Settings is the channel. Channels one through 11 are available options. Or, AutoChannel is an alternative choice and, in fact, the default. Choosing AutoChannel allows the wireless network equipment to automatically negotiate the best channel settings. Once the channel is specified, clicking Next continues to the next step.
Step 3: WLAN Security Settings enables configuring one of three security modes for the
SonicWALL wireless router. The three security mode choices are:

  • WiFiSec VPN Security – The default selection, WiFiSec VPN Security creates an IPSec-powered VPN over which the wireless traffic travels.
  • WEP + Stealth Mode – Utilizes Wired Equivalent Protection (WEP) to secure wireless communications.
  • Connectivity – Implements wireless communications featuring no encryption or access controls.
When selecting WiFiSec VPN Security and clicking Next, the Step 4: WiFiSec – VPN Client User Authentication page appears. This step helps create a user name and password for a new user with VPN client access privileges. The WLAN WiFiSec security setting will enable the SoniCWALL Group VPN feature. If you wish to edit user privileges, you can log on to the SonicWALL router’s Web-based administrative interface and edit user permissions by clicking Users | Settings.
After a user name and password are supplied, click Next to proceed to the wizard’s fifth step. The Step 5: Wireless Guest Services screen allows you to enable guest wireless access while also specifying the guest account name, password and account and session lifetimes.
Once these values are supplied, click Next to view a Wireless Configuration Summary. Clicking Apply prompts the SonicWALL Configuration Wizard to apply the settings and configuration parameters you’ve entered into the wizard. When the wizard completes, a confirmation page should then appear (with a Finish button being the only available option).

NetGear WGR826V has no clear port forwarding section in the setup, the mamnual is as clear as brick as to forwarding...so how do I forward a port on this brain dead router?


Forwarding Port – If you select 'Same as Incoming port' then all incoming traffic on specified Service is forwarded to LAN server without modifying Destination Port. – If you select 'Forward to another port range' then all incoming traffic received on the Service port (or range of ports) is forwarded to this port or range of ports of the LAN Server. – This field is disabled if action selected is "Block Always". – If you want to forward the traffic to a single port then enter port value in start port and leave finish port empty. – If you want to forward the traffic to range of ports then enter non zero value in finish port and make sure that service record attached to this rule has range of ports and range is equal to that of forwarding ports. – For example if you select Service as HTTP (TCP/80), LAN Server IP address as 192.168.15.10 and Forwarding port as 8080 then all traffic coming from internet on – TCP/80 (HTTP) to this Router is redirected to TCP/8080 port of 192.168.15.10 • WAN Users: These settings determine which packets are covered by the firewall rule, based on their source (WAN) IP address. Select the desired option: – Any All IP addresses are covered by this firewall rule. – Address range If this option is selected, you must enter the "Start" and "Finish" fields. – Single address Enter the required address in the "Start" fields. • Log: This determines whether packets covered by this firewall rule are logged. Select the desired action. – Never - never log traffic considered by this firewall rule, whether it matches or not. – Match - Log traffic only it matches this firewall rule. (The action is determined by this firewall rule.)
Ok well this is out of the manual, to me it seems straight forwards, but it is a brick too though, there is an example to help you, basically you tell it the Address of the PC, (Right click on NIC and get address) that you want ports to go to.. then ALLOW it, UN-disable actually.. in the tables.

I need to add an ip range to my sonicwall tz 170


This is not directly possible to do with a TZ170 as the device will only allow configuration for 1 static or dynamic IP at a time for the WAN port.

However this being the case, I suggest setting the SonicWALL up as a perimeter firewall and place devices that require the other public IPs form the additional IP range behind the TZ170. Basically the SonicWALL becomes the gateway for the other IPs needed as long as the range of the IP block is contiguous.

This would involve using the 4 ports of the LAN on the back of the TZ170 to connect directly to the other devices or if it is more then 4 devices, using a switch connected to the LAN side of the SonicWALL to provide connectivity to the multiple devices behind it. Most TZ170 are licensed for 10 connections on the LAN side and if you require more then 10, additional licenses will need to be purchased.

I would be careful pushing too much traffic through a TZ170 as it is designed for Small Business use and will quickly become overloaded with too much traffic causing high latency/traffic bottlenecks and in extreme cases connections being dropped. This is especially true for multiple VPNs.

Sonicwall client won't connect to the internet


The default VPN policy rules prevent LAN access, also known as split-tunneling, since this creates a security risk (the ability of the VPN session to be hijacked or compromised through a covert channel).

If you are not the system admin, you need to talk to your system admin. If you are the system admin, then you need to review the documentation with respect to

Open Port Sonicwall


1. If the port is to be opened for internal people to access the port outside the network, add a firewall allow policy in Firewall -> Access Rules -> LAN->WAN

2. If the port is to be opened for external people to access the port in the network, add a firewall allow policy in Firewall -> Access Rules -> WAN->LAN

I need to be able to ping the SonicWall TZ190 wan ip from the Internet for tracert puposes. There is no ping response to that IP address. The manual says. Click Objects, and then Services. Verify that...


Saibrains is correct unless your firmware is of earlier version. you might have to upgrade your firmware. Also you can not use a port #
No ports required for Ping as it uses icmp packets

It needs to allow icmp 'echo-request' (type 8) packets out and icmp 'echo-reply' (type 0) packets in
to allow ping request. On earlier versions of the sonicwall firmware it only absorbed Ping request as to stop hackers from ping attacking pass the firewall.

check the manufactures website for your model and see if they have newwer firmware.

The GUI should have a place where you can set it up

Sonicwall Pro 300 DMZ Problem


If you're within a network and try connecting to computers on it with the WAN public IP, it simply won't work - you must use the network IP. On an external Internet connection, it should connect fine to the public IP. If you have access to an external machine (remote desktop), or if you know of an FTP proxy, you can try it that way. I also believe http://www.webftp.co.uk/ a web based FTP client would act as somewhat of a proxy, you could try that with the public IP and see how you go.
