Recently I bought a secondhand Cisco 800 series router to replace my exisiting DSL router. While attempting to set it up with my eircom Business Broadband package, I ran into issues getting the dialler interface to connect. Searching the web let to some results but none of them were particularly helpful. In the interest of assisting anyone who may find themselves in a similar situation; the relevent configuration settings are listed here.

My router is a Cisco 837 but these configuration settings should be similar for other model series. IOS version installed is 12.4

Checking DSL is connected

In addition to the DSL lights on the front of the router, you can check to see if your router is connecting at the correct speed of your broadband package by issuing the following command at the console or by telnet/ssh connection to your router:

sh dsl int atm0
