Hello NetPRO Members,
General Questions (before i explain my router setup problems).
When i disable the atm0 interface i get always the message "*Mar 5 23:45:29.733: DSL: Connection has reached max retries, toggle to other mode" when i am connection over console
with the device. As long as the atm0 is not in use i dont like to get flood with that line periodically.
Any idea for this?
no ip address
no atm ilmi-keepalive
dsl operating-mode auto
Is it an normal operation that the RxD and TxD LED going on/off although the atm0 interface is not active? (on atm0 is not any cable connected).
I have 2 Network scenarios:
Note: I live in germany - if somebody like to help a little bit let me know.
1. Scenario: When possible i like to use the normal atm0 from c836 device. I guess its possible but i was not able to set it up. Some People say it wont work to use the internal c836 dsl modem on a ADSL 2+ line. I know that there are some differences between adsl and adsl 2+ but isnt there a fall back option?
Afaik there should exist some compatibility between ADSL and ADSL2 / ADSL 2+ . Physically on this connection is a speed limit something round about
8726 Kbps Down and 1017 Kbps Upstream.
I prefer a stable connection (useing the internal atm0 interface) more then useing an external dsl modem (which my provider supplied. Whats your opinion?
By the way i will post now the output about dsl connectivity that i take from out from the external modem device.
Is there generally a chance to get a adsl modem (with its maximum dsl operation speed) working on ADSL 2+ ???
I tryed a couple configurations but something go always wrong. Also i cant exclude i made configurations mistakes or its simple unpossible to work.
ADSL status shows the ADSL physical layer status.
ADSL Firmware Version: E.37.2.8

Latency - -
PVC-0 , PVC-1 and PVC-2 show this:
IP Address N/A
Subnet Mask N/A
Default Gateway N/A
PVC3 show the following:
IP Address 10.100.100.2
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway 10.100.100.1
Is it normal that always only one PVC is in use? Do is change automatic?
Due a Message length is limited to 4000 characters i will post my 2. Scenario later (if possible in the same conversation).
Thanks for every help!
Please read my reply above - you have latest firmware and the modem connects OK looking at you trace.
Just configure correctly and you can eliminate the external modem.
