Help needed on ASA issue!

daniel.markdaniel.mark Member Posts: 8 ■□□□□□□□□□
Please help as I am trying to connect my ASA to my Microsoft loopback adapter which is already bridged between with my wireless nic.I made sure I rebooted after I created the loopback adapter and also rebooted when I bridged both the wireless and loopback adapters.

Inside the ASA I configured the outside interface:
(asaconfig)#int gigabitethernet 1
(asaconfig)#nameif outside
(asaconfig)#security-level 0
(asaconfig)#ip add dhcp

My ip address of my wireless router is and my ip address of the computer/loopback adapter is What can I do to pull an ip address from my dhcp server (wireless router) to my ASA? Once it's successful there should be pulled ip address under my interface gigabitethernet 1 via dhcp instead of saying unassigned.

    Using Windows 8.1 and enabled compatibility mode for windows 7 on Winpcap with recent version. I disabled my firewall on computer and on wireless router. Disabled Antivirus. I even assigned a static ip under int gig 1(outside int) in the same subnet of and still cant ping to my pc or wireless router.

    Modularity and Design Simplicity:

    Think of the 2:00 a.m. test—if you were awakened in the
    middle of the night because of a network problem and had to figure out the
    traffic flows in your network while you were half asleep, could you do it?

    Thats just a how to for connecting asdm to the asa. In this problem I need to have the asa pull and ip address via dhcp from my wireless router which is also connected to my loopback adapter(bridged to my wifi adapter).

    Yes, but connectivity is connectivity whether its for ASDM or for DHCP.

    I followed the steps to the asa setup and dhcp setup. For some reason I cant get my interface g0/1 to pull a dhcp ip address from
    My wireless router.
