Gateway of Last Resort for a DHCP Broadband Connection

Answered Question
May 11th, 2008

Hello friends...

I've got an ASA 5505 with a Comcast Broadband connection, which is DHCP, NOT static.

How can I go about setting a default route, specifically the "gateway" for that connection, which changes because of DHCP?

Thanks everyone...

-Chris

I have this problem too.

Chris,

If Im not mistaken I believe when you have the outside interface as dhcp instead of static the ip address dhcp setroute statement under interface vlan2 will automatically instruct firewall with a default route returnd from the dhcp server side.

Actully here is a link, see DHCP client configuration part.
