Wireless Config for XP OS with Firebox Edge network firewall

1. check the drivers update for you device This is found at the manufacturers site. 2. See if your device is compatible with the OS (operating system) on your laptop. 3. Check the connecting cable to see if you have a broken wire inside the "strain relief". The cord at this point will have a puffy part that indicate that there is a broken cable.
To recover your Firebox X Edge e-Series device, you must first reset the Edge to its factory default settings, and then FTP the Edge v10.x appliance software to the Edge. To set the Firebox X Edge e-Series to the factory default settings:
Disconnect the power supply.
Hold down the Reset button on the rear side of the Edge.
Connect the power supply while you continue to hold down the Reset button.
Continue to hold down the button until the yellow Attn light stays on. This shows you that the Edge was successfully restored to the factory default settings. This process can take 45 seconds or more.
To FTP the Edge v10.x appliance software to the Edge:
Copy the Edge v10 upgrade file (yakfw.sysa-dl) to the root of your C: drive.
Edit the network settings on your computer so that it is part of the 192.168.111.0/24 subnet.
Connect your computer to any of the LAN interfaces on the Edge.
Open a command prompt. To open a command prompt, select Start > Run. Type cmd and press Enter.
Type ftp 192.168.111.1 and press Enter. When prompted, enter the user name admin and the password admin. Press Enter.
Type bin. Press Enter.
Type put yakfw.sysa-dl. Press Enter.
Type bye. Press Enter.
Type exit. Press Enter. The command prompt window closes.
Hi! some laptop have a built in wireless network card.. some dont have.. check first if the laptop have a built-in wireless nic. if there is one.. some of this wireless nic use the built in software so that you can connect wirelessly. you can just turn off that software and use the windows xp wireless zero config.. to turn on the windows xp wireless zero config, sometimes there is an option if you turn of the software for the wireless nic but if there is no option, you can click on start and then select run and from the box, type services.msc and it will show you all the services for the computer and scroll down to the button and you will see wireless zero config and its off or disable just right click and it will give you the option and enable it.. this will connect you wirelessly without any problem..
Use Crossloop. Each session is encrypted and doesn't require turning off firewalls in your routers. You will have to give it permission to run in Vista and XP, but it works and I've used it many times.
-- make sure that the wireless settings of your router match the wireless settings if you are using the utility of the linksys adapter
-- make sure also that you dont have any firewall or any security on your computer
-- you may also try disabling the adapter wireless utility and use the wireless xp zero configuration instead.
The key with any VPN solution is to make sure that the configurations on both ends match. I am not very familiar with this particular product, but it looks like you need to have the proper VPN licenses installed first.
There are two types of VPN you can do.
1) Site to Site - This is where the are two static boxes that you want to create an encrypted tunnel between
2) Remote User access - This is where mobile users connect to a central site over an encrypted tunnel from their home or on the road.
Next, take a looks at the User Guide PDF here:
Chapter 10 tells how to configure the VPN on the Firebox side. You would just duplicate your settings if your doing option #1.
Chapter 11 tells how to configure the VPN on the client side. This section would tell you how to configure the client software for option #2.
Hope this helps.
