I'm dealing with a 2921 router, a VDSL2 HWIC card, and a DSL line. Currently the line is connected to a modem which is connected to the router via ethernet and it all works fine.
I'm trying to use the HWIC card to connect directly with the service provider avoiding the modem.
The configuration on the router is ready but I think that's not the issue right now.
Just to clarify this: I did use the "no shutdown" command at the interface, and it works fine while connected to the modem so the line is powered on for sure.
First I connect the line to the router.
Then wait for a while (even more than 2 minutes).
Run the "show ip interface brief" command, and the interface still shows with the Status = Down; Line protocol = Down.
I'm thinking may be there is something wrong with the card, the LEDs at any time are:
- EN = solid green.
- CD = blinking green.
- LP = turned off.
It doesn't matter wheter I connect or disconnect the line, turn on or off the interface, these LEDs remain that way.
Is there something wrong with the interface? or it might be possible that the line turns off when connect it to my router and then detect when I re-connect it to the modem so it turns on again (Highly doubt it).
Thanks in advanced for any help.
