I don't think this is necesarily a proxy problem ... I had a similar problem but
found that in some versions of Smoothwall 0.9.9SE their scripts used the wrong
name for the software, which later becomes part of the url for validating the
patch list and the patch itself when you upload it. To get over this I edited
the script to use the correct software name ... can't remember which script now :o(

The DHCP in Smoothwall is so that you can use Smoothwall as a dhcp server for
your network. If you've done this because your ISP is using DHCP it sounds
wrong. Machines usually discover the dhcp server through packet broadcasts on a
particular interface...

That sounds fine unless your isp is giving you a static ip.

I think these are for ADSL ... my config doesn't use them

Sounds the same as my setup

I did start out using automatic config but I have since specified the actual DNS
