I have setup smoothwall andits working pefect when i am hard wired to
the green nic. the problem is i want to attach a linksys wifi router to
the green nic instead. once i attach the router i can no longer reach
the smoothwall box. Please Help!!!

Set up:

SMOOTHWALL
CABLE MODEM-------RED
GREEN-------------LINKSYS ROUTER - -
- - -DESKTOPS
ORANGE-----------MANAGED
HUB------------SERVERS

I assume it is down to the ips of each unit. please be as detailed as
possible as i am a total n00b Very Happy

You need a wireless access point not a router

If you have connected the WAN port on the linksys to smoothwall, you
would need a static route on the SW box. Connect one of the wired LAN
ports instead.
