Cutover from DSL to T1

Posted on 2007-10-06

My company is cutting over from a DSL connection to a T1.  The T1 has a standard RJ45 connection for our router.  We are using a SonicWall TZ 170 standard.  When I hook up the router to the T1 and go through the setup wizard on the SonicWall, it completes and the SonicWall reports that the WAN connection is up, however, I cannot browse the Internet.  I have checked and double checked the IP and DNS information and it is correct.  Is there something simple that I am missing?

I am marking this for 500 points since the T1 is already in place and I would like to cut over to it as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance.

    I don't think that the SonicWall has a T1 interface in it. A T1 requires a CSU/DSU module or a dedicated router provided by the ISP that hands you off Ethernet.

    Thank you.  Yes, the ISP has installed their equipment and has an RJ45 to hook up to the router.  The link light shows an active connection but I still can't reach the Internet.

    I checked again with tech support for the T1.  The problem was on their side.  I am considering the question closed.
