Connecting a router via ethernet to ADSL Modem

Unanswered Question
Dec 21st, 2007

I have a network where I have a 2621xm router which is conencting to an ADSL Modem that is "dumb". By this I mean we need the router to set up the connection via the modem.

We have been given the logon and registered etherent address to be used for the ADSL connection.

How do we configure the router to set up the PPTP connection via the ADSL modem?

Many Thanks

I have this problem too.

So the ADSL modem is setup to bridge correct? Here's an example config that should get you started.

interface FastEthernet0/1

description DSL WAN Interface

no ip address

no ip redirects

no ip unreachables

no ip proxy-arp

no ip mroute-cache

duplex auto

speed auto

pppoe enable

pppoe-client dial-pool-number 1


interface Dialer1

description DSL WAN Dialer$FW_OUTSIDE$

ip address negotiated

no ip unreachables

ip nat outside

ip virtual-reassembly

encapsulation ppp

no ip mroute-cache

dialer pool 1

dialer-group 1

no cdp enable

ppp authentication pap callin

ppp pap sent-username [email protected] password 0 SeCrEt

dialer-list 1 protocol ip permit

HTH and please rate.
