I have an NSA 220, that has

X0 =LAN, X1 = WAN, X4 = LAN ( voor a security vlan) , X6 =DMZ.

Now we want to use X5 for a different LAN and I need DHCP on this interface and also need internet connection on this interface

I will assign X5 interface to the LAN zone and give it an IP address that is different from X0 and X4 interfaces.

Then create a new DHCP and link it to the X4 interface.

Do I have to create a firewall access rule as well? or there is no need for that and I should have internet access on this interface as well?

    By default we have an access rule to allow all traffic from LAN to WAN zone so you do not need to add any rules on top of it. If they have been modified in the past then you might need to allow this new subnet manually.

    Thanks you as always for your quick replay.

    Then the steps that I mentioned except the creating of an access rule is correct and adding the X5 to LAN zone will be enough and devices connected to the X5 will have internet connection, is this correct?

    This is my access rule:
