Extreme 450e and HP Proliant Core Switch

Inherited a seemingly basic setup - HP Proliant Switch - Sonicwall Firewall plugged into port 24 on the HP
only default vlan1 with Ip -
Firewall setup with correct routes to HP switch
This all worked fine , anyone on the 199. network could access anyone and get out to the web.

I added in an Extreme 450e poe switch to support new wireless network.
I followed a setup that i was advised on to get it working and after many frustrating days finally got it working.
by adding new vlan2 wireless to hp switch giving it an ip address of and tagging port 21 which linked it to the new extreme switch.
adding a static route to the firewall

On the extreme switch all i did was create a new vlan with ID 2 , named it wireless, tagged port 21 {uplink to HP}
and added ports 1-16 untagged
I did not enable ipforwarding or assign either vlan an ipaddress.

Added below route setup to firewall as per sonicwall support -

Plugged laptop into port 1, assigned it a static 192.168.3.x address with gateway of
and was finally able to ping outside the firewall.
since then everything has been working fine. :)

After rebooting HP switch this week we are now unable to get out to the web again. :(
The extreme switch was not powered off when i rebooted the main switch.
Tried rebooting Extreme several times still nothing

Reset Extreme to factory settings and setup vlan 2 again

Deleted vlan 2 from HP switch and then readded it.

Still cannot get out - see pingable addresses below
