I have a Cisco 1801 Router that is really annoying me. Its brand new out the box. I have a Netgear ADSL modem that I set up in 5 minutes, and this Cisco Router is still annoying me after 8+ Hours of zero success.
I succesfully configured it but it halts on the Test Connection as "Could not ping the DNS Servers". The Green ADSL CD Light is solid on the front of the router when the line is connected.
Unlike the Netgear, the Cisco doesn't show what has failed. Is it the IP Configuration of the Interface? Is it the Username & Password? Who knows as SDM doesn't give you anything to go on.
Everything has been setup using the wizards and the settings all confirmed the same as the operating Netgear modem / ISP Website Settings.
Whats the common reason for failure to get a Ping reply during test if there is one?
