Have an enterprise version of Netopia Cayman 3346 v8.3.3.r0  router with Bellsouth DSL.   It's not an active line, but it is a backup connection in case our T1 line goes down.  I connect my computer directly to one of 4 of its ethernet ports and telnetting to configure it.  It connected to the internet before I tried configuring it for VPN.  Well, I've tried to get it back to original configuration and still unable to make an internet connection, although I managed to get it to succesfully connect at one point after that.  Then I tried configuring it for remote access and now can't connect again.  I've reviewed the settings a hundred times and it's exactly as I configured it when I once connected to the internet.  What else am I overlooking?   It's set for PPPoe Encapsulation, PaP athentication.  I've verified with Bellsouth that the local wan ip and dns addresses are correct.  I've tried connecting w/o hard coding the dns addresses.  Please advise.

Thank you

I also wanted to add that the router has a solid DSL sync light as well as the port I'm using.  And has been rebooted numerous times.

no answer to padi means broken atm circuit from the dslam to the isp. Nothing for you to fix, unless you have the atm parameters are misconfigured. BS I think uses 8/35 unlike most others with 0/35 vpi/vci.

The problem has been resolved.  It was something on Bellsouth's end.  After much pressing, they finally did a line/port reset which they called a provision.
