Re: dsl settings

The VCI & VPI settings are issued by the ISP

EX] 0 35

You will need to setup the atm interface.

What router are you using?

Re: dsl settings

Hi,

On the ATM link to your router, the ISP is free to assign pretty much any VPI/VCI, since they are locally significant to the link. Typically, they will use something like VPI 1 and VCI 32, for the sake of consistency.

Within the ISP's network, they will usually run a protocol such as PNNI, which will dynamically assign VPIs and VCIs on trunk interfaces.

Hope that helps - pls rate the post if it does.

Regards,
