Connect two routers with HWIC-1ADSL modules

Answered Question
Feb 20th, 2009


I couldn't find whether this module can be used as a central site DSL device(the client function is sure). This is needed to directly connect to Cisco router equipped with HWIC-1ADSL modules. I was using by now two Zyxel modems, but there is a difference between the two models (one of them is especially specified as a cetral side modem).

I will appreciate any answer!

Hello Georgi,

back to back connections are possible only with SDSL SHDSL modules.

All adsl modules are only capable to perform the client side role (ATU-R).

You need two network modules or VWICs for SDSL SHDSL


Hope to help
