My question has two parts, first: today at the place where i work we lost the internet, and after checking the firewall (sonicwall, this is a non profit organization so they cant afford the best stuff) i discovered it was more than likely a DOS attack. nobody could access the internet, and i could not connect to the firewall because of the amount of data being sent on the network. what would be the best way to access the firewall, and what can i do to make sure this does not happen again. Also if anyone can help me out with this second question one of the computers i configured for a user today would not access the internet. the ip address, and default gateway were configured correctly in the tcp/ip settings box, along with DNS primary and alternate. but when i tried to access the internet it would give me the web page not available message. i could ping the default gateway, the local host, but nothing on the web, also i could not ping the DNS server. this was before we lost internet.
