Setting up a Cisco 1841 Point to Point T1

I'm trying to set up a point to point t1 between two new Cisco 1841's.
I've got my own CSU's and no alarm lights are showing. The T1 seems happy.

I can't seem to get traffic to pass between the two routers though. Here is my config from router #1 and router #2 is exactly the same other than the IP addresses.

My bad I read the post wrong. So you don't have any alarms you just have no connectivity?

Can you router 1 serial interface from inside router 1? I don't see any routes.\ in your config.

Try to ping from one router to the other

Ping 10.160.26.2 source 10.160.26.1

If this works then you need to configure routes for traffic. I see you set a default gateway but that will only be used for traffic generated by the router itself. You may want to set a gateway of last resort instead.

ip route 0.0.0.0 0.0.0.0 10.160.26.2

Hope this helps

Thanks for the information regarding the gateway of last resort!  I didn't know that... good thign you told me or I'd be wondering why I couldn't pass traffic :P

As for pinging the line protocol won't stay up long enough to ping... on this side it goes up and down and on the other it doesn't even go up.

*Nov 27 18:13:37.344: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial0/1/
0, changed state to down
*Nov 27 18:13:47.344: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial0/1/
0, changed state to up

For more detais see....

I would put the equipment in a lab and test my configuration there. You can connect the csu's back to back with a t1 crossover cable and set up all routing. Then if you have problems on site you can narrow it down pretty quickly to a problem with the wiring or the telco.

Thats a great solution bfason, I tried that and it seemed be the solution. After following the link you provided I was able to make a T1 crossover cable and bring the equipment back from both locations and connect them toghether with the T1 crossover cable.
After testing everthing and swapping the Cisco Serial cards between the two routers I found that one card always did UP UP, then UP DOWN, repeatedly so I believe its that new serial card.
I"m in the process of doing an RMA today.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!
