Problem with PIX/WAP connectivity
Posts: n/a

I have a lab set up as follows;

Speedtouch 836 ADSL router - PIX 506 - Cisco 2924 switch - Linkysys
wireless G WAP

Public IP block: x.x.x.192/28
Router: x.x.x.198
PIX Outside: x.x.x.193
PIX Inside VLAN1:
PIX Inside VLAN2:

If I remove the PIX from the network and configure the Speedtouch to
carry out NAT and DHCP then the WAP works fine.
If I am connected to the 2924 switch via wire (and the WAP is taken out
of the equation) then there is no issue either.
However, when the PIX and WAP are both being used, my laptop's wireless
connection loses internet capability periodically (say around every
10-20mins). I can still ping the inside interface of the PIX, however
cannot telnet to it or ping any other sites or the router's address.
Nor can I even browse to the PDM (provided I am on the correct VLAN),
even though I can ping the inside interface. If I was connected to the
PIX via a telnet connection, then I am disconnected.
After about 5-6 mins, the connection is restored and it everything
works ok again.

Sh conf from PIX:
