Cisco 871W PPPOE Configuration

Hey guys,

I have a cisco 871W connected to a dsl modem that is in bridge mode. Currently I am having problems getting my Router to connect to my Att DSL modem. When I do a show ip int brief the fastethernet4 connection is not getting a public IP address. I have a basic understanding of cisco routers but I can't seem to figure out what is wrong with this configuration. I also feel like I have allot of "Pork" in my configuration so if you see something I don't need please let me know, for example I am not sure if I need dialer groups or vpdn.

Re: Cisco 871W PPPOE Configuration

Hello Dsheli,

>> for example I am not sure if I need dialer groups or vpdn.

vpdn were needed in older IOS images. You are missing the point of application of PPPoE

your fas4 need a command to make it the "physical interface" to be used by PPPoE

int fas4

! old command

! pppoe enable 
! needed one:
pppoe-client dial-pool-number 1


follow the link above to go on

it gives you the debug commands to be used

Hope to help
