I am contemplating replacing my Juniper Netscreen 5GT with this new RV180.
serial number 161303LB
However, it will not connect to my ISP (DSLExtreme) using the same settings I have been using for multiple years. DSLExtreme is using AT&T DSLAMS, as you likely know, and I am unaware of anything unique about how they serve DHCP?
The Cisco wizard sits on the WAN configuration check forever, and never connects. I have rebooted it and allowed it to sit for fifteen minutes trying. I think that is enough.
The 5GT WAN interface is configured for "DCHP Client" and that is how the RV180 is configured.
It is a standard 6MB DSL line, I have tried both the existing cable, as well as the provided one to connect to the D-Link 2320B modem/bridge, which, as I indicated, syncs almost instantly with the Netscreen. No difference when the cables are swapped.
Any insight would be appreciated. I really did not anticipate any issues as mine is as plain vanilla an isntallation as there is.
