    We are trying to configure the FVX538v2 to work in our network which
    has a Cisco 1602R router that is used as a gateway for the individiual
    workstations. It routes 131.* traffic to a searial-attached modem and
    all other traffic to the firewall (been trying a Watchguard Edge and

    I can connect to the Internet directly with 1 PC going into the
    Netgear. However, when I introduce the network into the Netgear and use
    the Cisco as a GW, if I run a 'show arp' command on the Cisco, the
    ARP/MAC address of the Netgear shows as "Incomplete". The IP address of
    it is correct though. But, I cannot ping the Netgear (times out) from
    inside the Cisco. I can also not ping the Netgear on the PC that is
    directly connected to the Netgear (when the Network is also plugged
    into the Netgear as well).

    Of note: running 'arp -a' on the workstation does display both the IP
    address and MAC address of the Cisco. I can also see both using the
    "Groups and Hosts" option in the GUI for the Netgear. But I cannot ping
    the Cisco from the directly connected PC and the ping in the Netgear
    interface also fails (times out).

    We do have a working Watchguard SOHO in place but noone can get into
    the config since we do not have the username/password and we are trying
    to replace it with the Netgear. With the SOHO in place, everything
    works fine.

    Below I have pasted the Cisco router config so you can see that there
    are no ACL's set up.

    Current configuration:
    service timestamps debug uptime
    service timestamps log uptime
    no service password-encryption
    hostname OurHost
    enable secret 5 xxxxxxxxxxx
    ip subnet-zero
    interface Ethernet0
    ip address
    ip helper-address 131.x.x.x
    no ip directed-broadcast
    interface Serial0
    bandwidth 56000
    ip address 172.x.x.x
    no ip directed-broadcast
    service-module 56k clock source line
    service-module 56k network-type dds
    ip classless
    ip route
    ip route 131.x.x.x 172.x.x.x
    line con 0
    transport input none
