Question about tablet connection through wireless router

Hi All,


I programmed in the firewall 100E a VLAN 215 with the IP address 24

I created a policy called router to tablet

A linksys smart router has been programmed with vlan 215 and on the wanside the ip is (Static) with dns and gateway etc.

I can ping using the router ping option, but when I connect a tablet to the wireless, I can open youtube page, but when you click play, it keeps loading the video and doesn't do anything

Also tried with skype but it says no internet connection

I checked my policy, disabled ssl certificate, proxy, and features visibilty for web filter etc, since the firewall doesn't have utm license.



From: Table vlan

To: wan 1 out

Source: Tablet router

Destination: all

Schedule: always


Might anybody have an idea, what I am missing?


Thank you in advance



Do you have source NAT enabled? If not can you enable source-nat interface

- Have you found a solution? Then give your helper a "Kudos" and mark the solution.

Hi Suraj,


Sorry forgot to mention, that I have NAT enabled.

Also one thing I noticed is that I can use whatsapp to send and recieve video and text messages.

The tablets don't have data on, only the wifi
