Hi guys, first up I would like to say thanks for sorting out my dhcp issues in the getting started with LANS part of the forum!
I have an issue now with my adsl connection. I have set up the dialer 0 and atm 0 interfaces according to this guide:
and have supplied my ISP settings:
Encapsulation VC/MUX or VC Based
Preferred MTU 1500 (or as close to as possible)
I have supplied my config as txt file.
Again I'm very new to Cisco so please take things step by step.
Hi, PVC 0/38 does not receive packets. Please check that you have the right number, and the ADSL port is connected, do check "show dsl interface". And yes, "term mon" enables the telnet terminal to monitor debug and other system events.
It says: line has not been activated yet
I didn't put any config into the atm0 interface interms of pvc, chap authentication, mtu, and line encapsulation, as all my ISP data went to the dialer0 interface which I thought dialled through the atm0. If I am mistaken then will I have to rebuild the atm0 interface with the info from the dialer0 interface?
Ok rectifying my statement since I think I'm getting myself confused: "I didn't put any config into the atm0 interface interms of pvc, chap authentication, mtu, and line encapsulation"
I used these commands:
Router(config)#interface atm 0
Router(config-if-atm-vc)#encapsulation aal5mux ppp dialer
Router(config-if-atm-vc)#dialer pool-member 1
Router(config)#interface dialer 1
Router(config-if)#ip address negotiated
Router(config-if)#no ip directed-broadcast
Router(config-if)#ip nat outside
Router(config-if)#dialer pool 1
Router(config-if)#ppp chap hostname
Router(config-if)#ppp chap password
#Router(config-if)#ppp pap sent-username
Router#configure terminal Router(config)#ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 dialer1 Router(config)#end
Router#configure terminal Router(config)#ip nat inside source list 1 interface dialer1 overload
As for my line, it works fine with an ordinary consumer modem - so I really don't know where the problem is :-(
Hi, that is all good, you also need "ppp authentication chap callin" under "in dialer1" and "ip nat inside" under interface vlan1, anyway, check output of "show int atm0" and "show dsl interface" to check line up and passing a packets.
I used the command: router(config)#interface dialer 0
router(conf-if)#ppp authentication chap callin
but it still doesn't work after switching my line from old router - it keeps saying line protocol is down?
What I'm telling you is that unless line is up as shown by "shot int atm0" and "show dsl interface", nothing will work. It may be a compatibility problem with the DSLAM. There is firmware available to correct this at:
Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
Do I have to be subscribed specially for it (as in not guest access)? as I've just tried from 2 web browsers and Filezilla FTP app and same prob..
Is there any documentation on upgrading the 800 series as the one I've found: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/routers/ps133/products_tech_note09186a0080094c07.shtml
is for 7000 series upwards?
If the basic principle is the same it means creating an ftp server from pc then downloading the image from the pc to the router.
I don't suppose there is a direct way through terminal?
Just use tftpd32 that is a free download and works nicely. No way to do it without a TFTP / FTP / HTTP/ RCP server.
Ok I transferred the file to the routers flash memory, now how do I get the system to use the binary?
I had a look at the upgrade command but it didn't work so I'm guessing I have to append a boot parameter somewhere?
Please read the document in the same directory on how to install the adsl firmware.
After, verify installation with "show dsl interface".
Thanks I think I upgraded fine, the only thing is that after running the command "show dsl interface atm 0" and "show interface atm" it doesn't tell me what version of firmware I'm using. After running: show dsl interface
Result is: ATM0

Brilliant, thank you so much I now have link and an IP!!! :-)
I think most of problems are over now, just whenever I try to ping outside the router now to test the connection it keeps trying to connect to the internal "ip name-server" instead of using dns provided by my isp and because of this pc not able to connect to internet. Is there a command for obtaining dns from isp or should I just clear the internal name-server?
glad to know the ADSL firmware has put you on-line. If you remove the name-servers from the configuration, the router will obtain them via PPP if you configure "ppp ipcp dns request' under dialer1.
Thanks for the nice rating and good luck!
Ok I got dns servers in!
Strange thing is that if I now try and ping a domain like say yahoo it comes out with "unrecognized host or address, or protocol not running" and if I ping the dns servers it just says "protocol not running"
I don't know if this is a routing issue, ie I didn't set something up right or if I need to configure RIP?
Oh and btw thanks for the patience if there was a rating for that you'd definately get tops!!!
No need for rip. Actually the name servers on the router are not important, anyway, if you have problems, do "show ip dns view" and check that the right addresses are in there.
Also check the access-list you are using in NAT statement.
This forum is to help anyone that has the patience of listening to advice and I whish something like that existed when I startedplaying with routers many many years ago.
"Show ip dns view" didn't work so I tried "show ip dns statistics/primary"
"primary" returned blank and "statistics" returned 0
As for my nat I have the lines:
ip nat pool pool1 192.168.1.0 192.168.2.0 netmask 0.0.0.255
ip nat source list 1 interface dialer0 overload
ip nat source list 100 dialer0 overload
My atm0 ip address is 184.108.40.206 255.255.255.0
I tried to create a new pool, pool2 which would be from 220.127.116.11
But when I use ping command it shows that it's connecting to dns servers, dns 1 and dns 2 and displays the ip addresses but still comes up with the same issue!
I'm really not sure where to start looking now, unless maybe I create a vlan between dns pool1 and pool2 ???
I managed to create an access-list:
access-list 1 permit 192.168.1.0 0.0.2.0 access-list 1 permit 18.104.22.168 0.0.200.0
then used this command: ip nat inside source list 1 pool no-overload to allow everything inside access
but I still keep getting dns errors?
Hi, the access-list should be like
access-list 1 permit 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255
Do not use ATM address in access-list.
You do not need to use any VLAN neither.
Ok hopefully I've setup my nat correctly with the command you suggested.
I'm still getting the dns issue though and after googling I discovered this: http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/105/reversedns.html
which I don't think is for dns provided by isp, never the less I tried playing and now after I type ping url it comes out with dns as 255.255.255.255 ?? I don't know how to clear this, I typed no ip name-server and no ip subnet-zero but still it's there?
The problem I was getting before modifying my dns setup was:
Router# ping www.novell.com Translating "www.novell.com"...domain server (dns 1, dns 2) % Unrecognized host or address, or protocol not running.
and now I see:
Router# ping www.novell.com Translating "www.novell.com"...domain server (255.255.255.255) % Unrecognized host or address, or protocol not running.
Hi, seems like the ISP is not passing the DNS address via IPCP, so you could remvoe that command and just configure the DNS statically.
I've now tried with static dns and same problem: Unrecognized host or address, or protocol not running.
which leads me to believe that I have to activate something like a deamon to start the protocol, or my routing is not setup correctly?
I've attached my current config so maybe there's something I haven't put or something I have which shouldn't be there!
Maybe even it has something to do with the dialerlist 1 protocol ip permit command?
Either way I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work with my isp as I previously had a D-Link and now an Action Tech modem/router hooked up and everythings fine with them.
