Introduction

How to configure the base station to use a PPPoE connection

 

Resolution

Configuring the Base Station By Using BSCU

PPP-over-Ethernet Configuration

 

The PPP-over-Ethernet Properties dialog box sets the appropriate options for access an ISP account through an Ethernet connection.

 

Step 1            Enter the Login User Name (1 to 50 characters); the name of the ISP account.

 

Note

In some ISP systems, the login username might have a longer format similar to username@ISPname.net or username@netname.ISPname.net.

 

Step 2            Enter the Login Password (1 to 50 characters). This password accesses the ISP account.

Step 3            Enter the Service (1 to 50 characters); the name of the ISP service used for this connection.

Step 4            Enter the Domain Name (1 to 50 characters); the ISP domain name, such as ISPname.net.

Step 5            Click Next. The parameters are accepted.

Step 6            Click OK. The base station configuration is complete when you see the base station wireless network IP address (192.168.200.1) on the status line at the bottom of the screen. Also, your Cisco Aironet radio card was programmed with corresponding settings to the base station.

PPP-over-Ethernet Configuration

 

The PPP over Ethernet mode allows the base station to connect to an ISP supporting PPP over a cable or DSL modem connection.

 

To enter the parameters, do the following:

 

Step 1            If needed, enter a new name in the Base station name field, and press Enter. This is the device name used to identify the base station. In some cases, an ISP might require a specific name.

 

The default base station name is BSM340_xxxxxx or BSE340_xxxxxx, where xxxxxx is the last 6 digits of the base station MAC address. BSM denotes a base station with an integrated modem, and BSE denotes an Ethernet only base station.

 

Step 2            Enter the login username in the Login user name field (1 to 50 characters), and press Enter. This name is used to log into the ISP account.

Step 3            Enter the password used to access the ISP account in the Login password field (1 to 50 characters), and press Enter.

Step 4            Enter the name of the ISP service in the Service field (1 to 50 characters), and press Enter.

Step 5            Enter the domain name of the ISP in the Domain name field (1 to 50 characters), such as ISPname.net, and press Enter.

Step 6            Return to Step 10.
