RE: [PLUG] connecting a router's wan port to a firewall?

I think the other option is to hook the firewall to the LAN side of the
router, disable dhcp on the wireless router. This should allow the dhcp
server on eth1 of the firewall to also assign addresses to the devices
on the wireless side as well.
