Internet access for wireless DMZ

I have a wireless router designed to provide visitors just internet access. The wireless router is hanging of the firewall. Here is the configuration I have on the firewall:

ip address inside

global (outside) 1 interface
nat (inside) 1 0 0
route outside 1

dhcpd address inside

dhcpd lease 3600

Now I have the following probem. When a visitor connects to the wireless router, the get an IP fine, but they can't to the internet.

What do I have to do?

Re: Internet access for wireless DMZ

Assuming that NAT is working correctly and the firewall is doing it's job with NAT, have you looked at DNS?  I would verify that you have the correct DNS addresses and that they too are allowed through your FW. 

You problem may be deeper than simple DNS issues, but I would start there.  No DNS = no Internet access.

I agree that this might be a DNS issue. Routing and NAT can be checked by i.e. ping
