Newbie firewall control panel question

Threaded View
My small office uses a Nexland ISB Pro 100 firewall. Occasionally, the
Intenet connection gets dreadfully slow, so we have learned to turn off
the firewall (and Alcatel modem) and turn it back on. Then everything
is back to normal.

I just discovered, however, that there may be a way to see an online
control panel for this firewall device. But I have no idea how to do
this. I suspect it is through a web interface (the same way as I can
see my printer on the network to check toner status, etc.). But I don't
know what the IP address for the firewall is.

What do I do next?

Dare I suggest RTFM?  It will show you the default IP-address which may
(or may not) still be relevant

The firwall is very probably the the gateway address used by your
workstation to access other networks.

ipconfig (or equivalent) will show you this address.

point your favourite browser at it.

if there is a web interface it will probably be protected by some form
of user authentication.  at this point you definitely need the manual to
tell you the default username/password - which incidentally should not
be left at their default values - you would be well advised to alter
them as soon as you log in.
