    Angry Firewall problems

    Please help

    I have a cisco pix 501 firewall.
    I want to be able to connect the firewall to a broadband router.

    I have managed to connect to the PDM interface of the firewall.

    The ip settings for the incoming interface I have left as default.
    DHCP has been enabled on the incoming interface.
    I have changed the outgoing interface to match the ip address of the broadband network address.
    I have set a static route to the router ip address.
    I have set my machine to obtain its ip address from a DHCP server.

    According to cisco instruction book (Worse instrcution manual I have ever seen) this is all I need to do
    The firewall and router leds show that they are working correctly.

    I can ping from the firewall to my machine but I am unable to ping outside the firewall. I am unable to ping the router ip address.

    I have been spending all my spare time trying to get this working without any luck. What am I doing wrong?

    Any help would be much appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Have you done a show config to verify your settings?
    Did you setup PAT or NAT?

    Try getting a broadband router with a firewall installed in it like a linksys. You can return or sell on ebay the firewall.

    It's not denial, I'm just selective about the reality I accept.
