asa-5512-x no connectivity to internet

I am going from a pix-515e to asa-5512-x.   I used the wizard for the initial setup.  I then set the interfaces the same, objects, nat rules, routes, ACLs the same as in the 515e (except for the outside interface ACL where you use the inside address now, rather than the outside...and you have a global deny rule for all interfaces) . 

I take the cables from the inside / outside interface from the 515e, plug them into the 5512x and nada...

Computers on the inside can't get out.   I see egress failures on the ASDM monitor from the inside to outside.  I don't see any traffic coming in on the outside interface to the inside as I do on the ASDM of the 515e.

At a quick glance the config

At a quick glance the config looks pretty clean (please do use ssh and not telnet though)

Since you replaced one box with another, have you checked that your upstream (Outside) device is reachable from the ASA itself? (i.e can you ping your default gateway at 2 )

I've sometimes seen cases where we had to ask the ISP to clear their ARP cache when changing out firewalls.

It looked like it was the ISP.  It took a few minutes with the new ASA hooked up for computers to get internet activity.  I noticed the computers on the dynamic nat had internet connectivity first, but the servers on static nats did not.  I changed the nats to both directions (instead of unidirectional) and it started working.  Not sure if that fixed it for the statics or i needed to wait longer for the ISP to adjust.

I would make sure you have an

I would make sure you have an ARP entry for your default gateway:

show arp

If so I would then run a packet tracer simulation to verify all is well.

packet-tracer input inside tcp aol aol

Finally I would change console timeout from 0 to 30.  Console timeout 0 means it will never timeout and stay logged in.
