Help with Cisco 857 ADSL configuration

I have a DSL connection in our office and just found a Cisco 857 router while doing an inventory and thought of using the device as an ADSL modem for my connection instead of the present US Robotics but little did I know that my lack of experience is goona make this a tough task.

Here I am posting my start-up configuration:

I have used two IP on VLAN 1 as the 192.168.1.1 is supposed to be for our bluecoat device and the 192.168.6.1 is for another UTM device.

I get connected and I get an external IP assigned also. The problem starts from there.

When I telnet the router and ping 4.2.2.2, it is successful. So is it successful when I ping few other domains like facebook.com, gmail.com, google.com, our mail server but the ping fails when I try hotmail.com. The second problem is while I try to surf the net. If I enter any qualified domain address like www.google.com, mail.google.com, or any other I cannot access the page but if I try surfing to Google using the IP address I am shown the page or any other web site with their IP address I am taken to the webpage except hotmail.

Could someone help me as to why I can’t access hotmail and why I am not able to surf using the domain name.

Re: Help with Cisco 857 ADSL configuration

On the PC, set DNS to router VLAN, then

conf t

ip dns

int dialer0

ppp ipcp dns request

ppp ipcp route default

no ppp ipcp wins request

int vlan1

ip tcp adjust-mss 1452

no hold-queue 100 out

no ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 Dialer0

Note, most ISP that work as PPPoE, do work as PPPoA also, that would allow you use default MTU of 1500.

A new problem that I am facing now is that I cannot telnet using 192.168.1.1 but it is possible through 192.168.6.1. Also I am not able to ping the 1 range from within my network.

Can i get some help on this too.

Re: Help with Cisco 857 ADSL configuration

Dear Joby ,

Please apply the below config. on Dialer 1

interface Dialer10

  ip mtu 1442
  ip tcp adjust-mss 1394

Another thing instead of standard acl use extended access-list

access-list 123 deny   ip 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255 192.168.6.0 0.0.0.255
access-list 123 deny   ip 192.168.6.0 0.0.0.255 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255
access-list 123 permit  ip 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255 any

access-list 123 permit  ip 192.168.6.0 0.0.0.255 any

ip nat inside source list 123 interface Dialer0 overload

and let me know if it solves your problem or not

Re: Help with Cisco 857 ADSL configuration

Please apply the below config. on Dialer 1

interface Dialer10

  ip mtu 1442
  ip tcp adjust-mss 1394

Incorrect, MTU and TCP MSS values for PPPoE are 1492, and 1452 respectively. Furthermore, TCP MSS must be configured on LAN interface, not dialer.

Another thing instead of standard acl use extended access-list

access-list 123 deny   ip 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255 192.168.6.0 0.0.0.255
access-list 123 deny   ip 192.168.6.0 0.0.0.255 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255
access-list 123 permit  ip 192.168.1.0 0.0.0.255 any

access-list 123 permit  ip 192.168.6.0 0.0.0.255 any

Incorrect, it is not necessary to use extended ACL for NAT control.

Bronze

Re: Help with Cisco 857 ADSL configuration

Dear bevilacqua,

I respect your answer , but the MTU value 1442 was recommened by our Telco in Saudi Arabia . Before we were using the default setting (ie MTU 1442) and we face some problem with some applications and our Telco recommended to change the MTU on ADSL modem to 1442 . The issue was due to some intermediate device in Telco that was not passing packets greater than 1442 and i don't know whether they fixed the issue with Telco or not .

Now I have a question , Is there is any problem if I reduce my MTU size to 1442 other than fragmentation issue

I always prefer using extended ACL instead of standard ACL this will give more control .For standard ACL you will be only able to specify source , but on extended you can specify source ,destination and port number . In this case I want to make sure that the traffic from  192.168.1.0/24 to 192.168.6.0/24 and vice versa is not NATed , that ''y I put the extended ACL . But since this the same interface , the traffic will not pass undergo NAT just as a trial i exclde  this traffic from NAT

Check settings on computers using 192.168.1.x

Re: Help with Cisco 857 ADSL configuration

Well I don't know what made it work but I changed my primary IP from 192.168.1.1 to 192.168.1.254. So now both the IPs are giving ping and I am able to surf the web too. But a few problems I am facing I am putting it down  here.

1. I keep getting this error.

Network Error (dns_server_failure)

Your request could not be processed because an error occurred contacting the DNS server.
The DNS server may be temporarily unavailable, or there could be a network problem.

For assistance, contact your network support team.

This error sometimes appear on pages that are displayed like in places where ads appear an like. Also this error comes up when I try to search a word direct from Firefox address bar, which previously used to give a list of Google results. However Google is loaded without any problem when I type  in its address in the address bar.

2.

I would like to configure Dynamic DNS on the device and how do i go about this. I am still a beginner and I would like all the help I can in this.

3.

I have noticed that the device at times hangs with the PPP lights out while the others are still up. Is this a device problem or is there any values that I need to change. I also see the device usage at 100%.

Thanks for all the response.

My present configuration is:

Re: Help with Cisco 857 ADSL configuration

Dear Jobin

1. I keep getting this error.

Configure ISP DNS on your PC statically and see whether it fixes your issue or not ?
Also make sure that you can ping to ISP DNS without any problem .

also you can try Google public DNS servers with below IP

  • 8.8.8.8
  • 8.8.4.4


2.I would like to configure Dynamic DNS on the device and how do i go about this. I am still a beginner and I would like all the help I can in this.

Check the below link
http://www.firewall.cx/tk-cisco-routers-ddns.php


3.I have noticed that the device at times hangs with the PPP lights out while the others are still up. Is this a device problem or is there any values that I need to change. I also see the device usage at 100%.

Check the output of "sh interfaces dialer 0 " and make sure about the utilization and make sure that there is no infected PC in network . If the utilization is too high try connecting only one PC and check whether it solves the problem or not ? .Also if you can just put an email to me

Haris

You need to upgrade IOS. Hopefully you can find an image as normally you need a support contract for that.
