If you are using the firewall as the DHCP server, you may need to check the DHCP lease period on the firewall & increase it if required.

SOURCE: Sir I have SonicWall pro 2040,

Just upgrade to the IPS (instrusion prevention subscription) for your 2040 and check Prevent ALL for HIGH, MEDIUM and LOW (LOW blocks Facebook like a champ). You'll find some other services blocked as well such as Terminal Services, but you can filter individual LOW priority attacks to allow those connections in (I recommend VPN for Terminal services anyway).

I actually was looking for a way to OPEN connections to Facebook while preventing LOW priority attacks and found your post.

When my boyfriend was using my treo pro he put a security password on it and now he doesn't remember the password. how can i reset it?


These steps will erase all data from the device. You may want to synchronize if possible before trying these steps.

1. Take the back panel off to expose the reset hole.
2. Press Power to turn on the screen.
3. While pressing and holding End, use the tip of the stylus or a small paper clip to press and release the Reset button.
4. Continue pressing and holding End until the Erase all data? prompt appears.
5. Press Up.
6. Wait for the progress bar on to fill up, then you can use the device again.

There is no reset button on this models like other Palm devices, so performing a hard reset can be tricky.

How to hard reset your this types ?

1. Disconnect the Treo from a charger or USB cable.
2. Remove the battery cover and take out the battery.
3. Press and hold Power/End while you insert the battery.
4. When the screen lights up with the logo appears, release Power/End.
5. Press Up when the Erase all data? prompt appears.
6. Press Up to confirm the hard reset.
7. Go through the steps of setting up the device again by picking a language and calibrating the stylus.
Now your Treo is hard reset.

I have a ZX4931-31e gateway all-in-one. i did a system restore back to factory settings. when it rebooted i was asked to log in and i don't know what the reset administrator password is? i tried...


Have you tried a blank password for the administrator. Just press enter when administrator pops up. If that does not work, try administrator. That should solve your problem.

Thanks for using FixYa!

I am forget the my sonicwall administrator password. how to login


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
You can't login, all you can do is to reset the SonicWall. There is a small pinhole on the front panel, hold it for some time... that will boot it in a safe mode to reset it.
I hope you have a clear picture now.
Concerned, Nooh.

I am a admin at a new company and they do not know nor can they find the Admin login and password. Is there a way to hack in to the SonicWALL PRO 230 Firewall unit?


Deafault user: admin
password: password

default ip: 192.168.168.168

if in case you cannot get in, you need to reset the device to its factory default.

I have a sonicwall pro 2040 and while the firewall rules look correct, I cannot get traffic from the WLAN to the LAN, nor from the WLAN to the WAN.


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).
