Configuration using the Setup Wizard
The Web Configuration Manager contains a Setup Wizard that can automatically determine your
network connection type. If the Setup Wizard does not launch automatically, click on the Setup
Wizard heading in the upper left of the opening screen, shown in Figure 4-2.
When the Wizard launches, allow the firewall to automatically determine your connection type by
selecting Yes in the menu below and clicking Next:
The Setup Wizard will now check for a connection on the Internet port. If the Setup Wizard
determines that there is no connection to the Internet port, you will be prompted to check the
physical connection between your firewall and cable or DSL modem. When the connection is
properly made, the firewall’s Internet LED should be on.
Next, the Setup Wizard will attempt to determine which of the following connection types
your Internet service account uses:
Dynamic IP assignment
Fixed IP address assignment
A login protocol such as PPPoE
The Setup Wizard will report which connection type it has discovered, and it will then use the
appropriate configuration menu for that connection type.
