No internet access on new LAN eth0/2

No internet access on new LAN eth0/2

No internet access on new LAN eth0/2

I have an ASA 5510 and just configured eth0/2 as to expand my network -- I would like to just put all the wireless access points on this new network. I don't have much CLI experience but have been using ASDM for the last couple years and have managed to figure out how to do quite a bit just by looking at how other ASAs are configured while working.

Eth0/1 is and currently on average only has ~5 IP addresses left in the DHCP pool.

I enabled bi-directional traffic using the following command:

static (inside,inside-wlan) netmask

Now I can RDP to a computer on the network from the, but from that 200.x computer I cannot get to the internet or ping the router on the 100.x network ( I can connect to ALL OTHER COMPUTERS on the "main" network (, I just can't ping the router on that network or get to the internet... so this whole LAN is useless unless it can get to the internet.

I tried:

static (inside-wlan,inside) netmask

...but still no luck.

What do I need to do to get internet on eth0/2?

Result of the command: "sh run"

RE: No internet access on new LAN eth0/2

The second static() you added is not valid. You are missing a translation from inside-wlan to the Internet.
Something like:
nat (inside-wlan) 1 
As for pinging, you cannot ping the ASA interfaces without allowing that explicitely, for example:
icmp permit any inside 
I would discourage from allowing that on the outside/DMZ interfaces though.

RE: No internet access on new LAN eth0/2

Wow! Thanks for the quick reply iggsterman. Should I remove the second static line then, or leave it and add the nat line?

I can ping the gateway from the network. From what I understand if I make the security level the same on eth0/2 (100, just like eth0/1), it's technically not a DMZ but just a second LAN?

Thanks again for your reply!!

RE: No internet access on new LAN eth0/2

YOU THE MAN iggsterman. IT WORKED! My palms are sweating, it's been MONTHS! Many, many thanks! :D

RE: No internet access on new LAN eth0/2

Glad it worked. To answer your question, making interfaces same security will only allow traffic between them IF nat-control is off, then you won't need any translation rules. I personally do not like implicit allowances on a security device. It is always better to have the "deny all unless explicitly allowed" approach. But that's me.

RE: No internet access on new LAN eth0/2

Last question. I just want to clarify what "nat (inside-wlan) 1" actually did. Is it basically creating a default route for that interface, and does 1 represent the "pool ID"?

Many thanks again. I have been posting on Cisco forums for months but I just get drive-by "try this...., try that..." (I feel only to increase their "points") and no one sticks around.

RE: No internet access on new LAN eth0/2

No, this is not creating any routes. When your traffic wants to leave the inside-wlan interface for some site outside your (only) matching route will be
route newISP x.x.x.x 1 
This is when the NAT (PAT actually) rule will apply and translate your internal IP addresses to the address specified by global 1, which in your case is that of the interface itself.

Good luck.
