Re: Modem DIAL OUT from 2620 router

Go to and search for "access cookbook" or "async ddr", that should be what you are looking for. To find out why your stuff isn't working do this:

debug dialer

debug modem

debug chat

debug ppp nego

You might want to try this:

config t

modemcap edit usr misc &fs0=1&c1&d1&h1&r2&b1&k1&m4

line X Y !x=first line y=last line

modem autoconfigure type usr


Run "debug confmodem" to see if the modems are taking the string.

Re: Modem DIAL OUT from 2620 router

thanks for the info...i tried the debug commands that you gave me...and the router responded to say that they were running...however...i counldn't obtain any info as to why the modem(s) were not dialing. --do you have instant messenger/MSN messenger ? -if so...respond YES here- and send the username info to --i need to try to get this running asap- (this case has been open a while and needed to be finished yesterday) --kind of in a tight spot...

Did you do "term mon" to see the debugs(if logged in via telnet)? If you have "logging syncronous" configured under line con 0 that might be breaking it too.

Oh well, send me a message and then we can post back here with the results.
