Hi There!

Would there be any reasonable reason for an ISP to give a UFB connection a Static IP with a Subnet Mask of 255.255.255.0? My understanding was that in a P2P Connection like UFB the Static IP assigned to the connection would be 255.255.255.255

Any insight would be appreciated.

It is a bug with Sonicwalls. See http://www.tec1.co.uk/blog/pppoe-subnet-mask-issues-with-sonicwalls.

I would check with your vendor if they have a fix for this problem

This is also answered on the Dell Website and describes it as feature.. rather than a bug.
