3G wireless card help

We have gotten a 3G wireless card for a 2811 router we have with service through Verizon. I have activated the card and it appeared to work. Doing a show Cellular all I can see the phone number and the username and everything. However, I am not seeing an IP address. We were assigend a static but it's still not showing up. Here is my config for the card...

interface Cellular0/1/0

ip address negotiated

encapsulation ppp

dialer in-band

async mode interactive

ppp chap hostname

ppp chap password 0 vzw

ppp pap sent-username password 0 vzw

I obviously changed the number. Anybody dealt with this before that could give some pointers? Here is my show interface...

Cellular0/1/0 is up (spoofing), line protocol is up (spoofing)

Re: 3G wireless card help

Hello Dennis,

I would add

ppp authentication chap pap

you have configured the parameters to be used but not to use authentication

you can debug as usual with

debup ppp neg

debug ppp auth

you need to see LCP open IPCP open LCP closed means the ppp session is stopped

Hope to help
