School Sonicwall Problem

By ccoleman ·
I have a Sonicwall Pro 200. This device is constantly resetting every 7 or so minutes, causing us to have outages across our network. Sonicwall tells me that if we have a computer that someone has hooked to the network and is a wireless device, then this will create an IP Spoof- Yet it becomes difficult to find which device on our network is actually doing this. Does anyone know of a network monitoring tool that will find out the MAC address of the computer that is causing this problem!??!?!?!

This is on a School network so there are a combination of Mac's and Windows PC's.

Your Sonicwall tech is blowing smoke up your behind I thinks.

I run Sonicwall equipment on my network with mulitple WAPs and wireless devices ranging from handhelds to PCs.

The only way that you may be getting a spoof reading is if your have traversing WAPs and even then it would only be the offending device that should be getting blocked.

I'd take it back to Sonicwall and demand they mitigate the problem. If there hardware is going to crash each and everytime you have a potential attack they are in essence introducing a DOS to your network.

Hope that helps.
