Dial Back-up on 871

I have dial back up configred on 871 with parameters below.

871 Conencts to an AirLink Raven box which provides fixed wireless broadband.


track 10 rtr 1 reachability

delay down 70 up 70

ip route IP Address track 10

ip sla 1

icmp-echo source-interface FastEthernet4

timeout 10000

ip sla reaction-configuration 1 react timeout threshold-type consecutive 3 action-type triggerOnly


The way i interprete this is dial will wait for three consecutive timeouts and then wait 70 seconds before activating external modem.

Despite fact that the primary never goes down, we have instances of modem dialing out due to false positive.

What can I do to eliminate this?

Hello Paresh,

have you tried to increase the number of consecutive failures to trigger the dial?

Hope to help
