Bypassing the Firewall/Router

By stepsimon ·
I'm having trouble going directly to my switch from my router. The path goes from the demarc to the ISP's router, (Cisco IAD 2400 series), to a small router/firewall, (Linksys BEFSX41), we use for the firewall part, then to the switch. No problems there. When I plug from the ISP's router into the switch,(HP Procurve 1410 24G), plugging directly into the front panel where the firewall/router was connected, I lose the internet.

Is something staring me in the face, that I'm going to be embarrassed about missing? If so, please tell me what it is.

What are you trying to accomplish? I have a switch off of my IAD for the purpose of having multiple public devices (Firewall, SSLVPN Device, Web Server) etc...however I have a range of Public IP's to use also, no DHCP. Like others said, I would guess this is whats happening here.

Why are you bypassing the firewall?
