    Default First Time Installation

    I am evaluating Untangle Web Filter on a home network to see if we can use it in our office building with several hundred users.

    I have a cable internet modem, a wireless linksys router, and a PC with Untangle installed.

    Can you offer some guidance on how I should be configuring the hardware for this setup? When I tried on my own, I always get the message that my DNS passed, but Internet failed.

    Any advice would be great. Let me know if I need to be more specific.

    Plug the untangle into your network.

    Start cd install.

    Configure untangle as a bridge with the currently plugged in nic as your external.

    Plug your current pc into the untangle's other port.

    You are done.

    Thank you.

    In my scenario, I am going from the Untangle PC to a Linksys wireless router. Will I be plugging the router into the second Untangle port?

    If so, do the settings on the router need to be updated at all?

    He called. The problem may be that he didnt restart his cable modem after he replaced the linksys with the untangle. Cable modems often (especially motorola modems) store the MAC of the router they are attached too. They will only communicate with that MAC and nothing else. When you restart the modem it wipes out that mac and replaces it with the first mac it finds, which would be untangle's mac.

    it's not the cable modem but the CMTS(or head-end) that stores it which makes this irregardless of modem options. Whether or not the Mac is bound to the account is purely the cable provider's decision.(i used to install/troubleshoot these things..<G>).
