My ISP which will remain nameless -unless someone asks- doesn't know the encapsulation type, pvc's and other relevant information I need to configure my router. The only thing they can tell me is they don't use pppoe so that leaves IRB and PPPOA.

Is there anyway I can find parts or some of this information, other than configuring each encap method after the other?

I had to guess the PVC and managed to get that right and the adsl wic is trained. However the provider states they can see my ip address but not my MAC. hmmm
