Cisco 870 Series PPPoE Problem. Connects but no internet access

Hi Experts
I have a Cisco 870 series router that I am using for internet access.  I am having problems with PPPoE.  I know that I have setup PPPoE correctly because I use the same settings on a 3COM router and it works fine.  On the Cisco the CD and ppp indicators are lit.  Some activity occurs from time to to time on the RXD and TXD lights.  The ATM status is up yet I have no IP Address when I view the setup via SDM.  Also NAT appears to be ok.  I have attached file that details the present running-config. (please note that the ATM0.1 is down because phone cable is disconnected presently).Any suggestions would be welcome?

You have no default route set up to tell the router where to send traffic that it doesn't know.

try adding in

ip route dialer0

Hi taylorpt,

I added the ip route you suggested.  No luck however.  I have recheked my dsl settings and they are ok.
Any further suggestions?
try to reset the dialer.

int dialer0

no ip add
ip add negotiated

add in pap authetication - just in case the dsl provider is using it.

 ppp pap hostname cleere@dsl.digiweb.ie
 ppp pap password 0 cleere

I would also confirm that you are expecting to DHCP your Dialer0 IP ADD.

might be a static...
check with your isp & confirm the authentication (pap, chap) is corrrect and verifiy the dsl modem/router is bridged properly. 
confirm the cisco is connected & the dsl is up n running...
sho dsl int atm0

The router was not bridged properly.  That was the problem and it has now been resolved.  Sorry re delay replying to you and many thanks for your help
