I use the web interface and the Hyper terminal telnet .

I would appreciate if you can help me a.s.a.p.

Ok, if you are not using the 501 to act as a DHCP server then you'll need to take this feature out.

In configuration mode:

clear dhcpd

save with: write mem

Now you'll be able to change the inside interface IP address i.e.

In configuration mode:

no ip address inside

ip address inside

Again - save with: write mem

Hope this helps and please rate posts.
