Trying to configure my cisco 1721 w/ adsl wic to allow me to connect to the internet via ADSL. My provider has indicated that these are the correct settings:

VPI: 0
VCI: 38
Encapsulation: PPPoA using VC-Mux
Authentication: CHAP
Modulation: G.dmt

Have tried going through all the PPPoA docs on Cisco.com, but still can't get it working. I have gotten it so that the dialer0 indicates it gets the correct IP from my provider, but I can't ping any IP on the net. Here is my config--any help greatly appreciated:

Your router's IP address will almost definitely be 192.168.20.1 and the sub-net IP address 255.255.255.0 that should make your pc 192.168.20.2 with subnet 255.255.255.0.

I suggest that you don't use any of these IP addresses and instead tick the boxes for automatic address configuration. It saves a lot of bother.

By the way if you attached you router to your pc by ethernet you'll need to use PPpoE - my guess is that your router has a built in ADSL modem and that you've adopted the fastest link to your pc which probably also acts as a print server for the other wireless users.

That's correct, but that doesn't change the fact that I can't ping anything on the Net *from the router* let alone the network. And that internal addressing will work fine, once the router starts being able to see the outside world.

Patrick, this is a cisco 1700 series. I don't really understand the relevance of your comments.
The Fe0 of the router goes into a switch, of which one port goes into the server in question. But all this is irrelevant to the question: what's wrong with the config above such that I cannot ping net addresses from the router.

I found the answer by Posting on Google Groups comp.dcom.sys.cisco. Here is the summary:

1. Enable IP routing

2. access-list 1 permit 192.168.20.0 0.0.0.255
 ip nat inside source list 1 interface Dialer0 overload

With those commands it works great!
