Right, so I have a very weird issue that is annoying me no end. I can not figure it out
I have a PIX 515e firewall with an ADSL Modem attahced to one of the fast ethernet ports. The ADSL modem is in bridge mode and the PIX does the authentication on the ADSL connection
Now, its been working fine for weeks and weeks. I changed from 1 ADSL provider to another, and NO troubles.....
Today, we had a power outage and when it all came back online, no dice. The config to the PIX had be written to flash before the power cut
2 hours of mucking around and i gave up. I grabbed an old netgear modem and plugged it in, didnt work at first, until i changed the ADSL Multiplexing Method type to LLC-Based
Changed back to the PIX - same issue, got sync, but no connection
My questions: How the heck can i set that same Multiplexing Method on the PIX to rule that out as the issue?
The modem being used for the Bridging - i hard reset it, and that modem connects fine (its a Linksys), but again, back in bridge mode - no dice
I redid all the PPPoE config on the PIX and same thing, but i can not for the life of me find where to change the Multiplexing Method
Any advice? Please? I'm really desperate here, Please and thank you in advance guys
Wouldn't that indicate something changed on ISP side? I mean PIX/ASA never supported SNAP/LLC from what I know.
As last resort give it a try without password storing then I would give ISP a call. (you might try running "fsck" before doing any changes).
