DSL interface down on 2800 router

I am trying to make an ADSL Internet connection with 2800 router. ADSL line is working with another brand ADSL router (ADSL_G.dmt modulation, 49 downstream attenuation, 31 attenuation, fast path mode). However when I try to connect 2800 router this line it fails: Debug atm error and events show that, the router announces line quality as bad. How could I change the SNR margins? Also I could not see the controller dsl 0/1/0 on the router configurations.

The configuration is quite simple:

interface ATM0/1/0

no ip address

no ip redirects

no ip proxy-arp

no ip route-cache cef

no ip mroute-cache

load-interval 30

no atm ilmi-keepalive

dsl operating-mode auto

pvc 8/35

pppoe-client dial-pool-number 1



CCI-RT-TST-01#sh run int di 0
