Hello All Experts,

We have just finish configuration on Cisco 1861 router, but i am unable to browse Internet from Cisco 1861, we have DSL line with Dynamic IP & our ISP is OPTUS  In Melbourne,
We have Physical connection as per below
Internet provider (OPTUS)<---> Linksys Modem(AM300 & IP :192.168.1.1/24) <---> Cisco 1861 (LAN IP, 192.168.8.1) <---> Workstation (192.168.8.2 to 192.168.8.254),

But We can't access Internet from Cisco Device, I'm not sure about Linksys modem.
Can anyone suggest me what configuration need to be done on Linksys for getting Internet from Cisco Device..
How to Configure Linksys router for DSL Line with Cisco 1861 ?

Have you even set an IP on the Cisco's external NIC?  It should be 192.168.1.x.  Make sure you can ping the Linksys from the Cisco.  What does your routing table look like on the Cisco?  It also sounds like you're not even sure if the Linksys is online.  Plug a PC directly into it to verify that too.

It's hard to tell without a traceroute.  Need to check if you are getting to DNS, check DNS resolution, then do traceroute.   That will help you narrow it down.

Bridge mode may be more difficult to work with.  And you haven't given us your complete IP scheme.  If you set up your linksys modem in bridge mode, then is the Cisco router setup for DHCP on the outside?  And have you checked the things that I mentioned?  DNS, tracert?

Hello rfportilla,

Thanks for your reply
I'm sure The issue is on Linksys Modem, because I didn't get Internet on cisco from Linksys.

Can you please check my Running Configuration

It's frustrating when we make the effort to give ideas and you just ignore them.

If the linksys truly is in bridge mode, then dhcp should not be setup on the linksys.  It is difficult to decipher the file.  If you can connect to the linksys config screen and it is in bridge mode, you should not set up any ip addresses to be assigned or firewall settings.  The bridge should serve as a pass-through device and the cisco router will use whatever settings are assigned by the ISP.

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Thanks rfportilla,

But I am feeling Bridge mode is wrong for Linksys, Seems my ISP is using PPPoE
http://help.optuszoo.com.au/help/dsl/connected/windows/modemwvista/speedstream_eth#pc_settings
And I think Linksys can't be used in bridge mode with PPPoE Connection.

kav, on the contrary I suspect that the Linksys can bridge PPPoE just fine.  The interface fast 0/0 on your 1861 clearly seems to be ready for PPPoE, but the prob is that I don't understand how to then initiate the PPPoE connection from the Cisco.  It is really hard to figure out what ports your 1861 has as the pic is so small and I'm unfamiliar with it  http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/routers/ps5853/ps8321/product_data_sheet0900aecd806c4dce.pdf.  Which ports are your Linksys and laptop plugged into on the router .. tell me the name of the ports and where it is on the picture plz.

Your current config has phones and split sub interfaces and BVI interfaces.  I'm only a CCNA and I just don't understand enough about your config and options on this device.  I would config a static normal IP on your WAN interface and on one of the LAN interfaces, but this would destroy a lot of the other nifty config that's alreaday on there for some good reason.  It's interesting that your 1861 seems to have so much functionality, yet I can't find any useful configuratioin guides.  Maybe you're supposed to hire a pro to install/configure it for you.

Thanks kav, but I'm asking about the physical ports on the 1861.  If you could just use the picture (in my last link) as a guide and tell me the name and colour of every port on the 1861, then tell me what cable/device is plugged into each one, that'd be most helpful.

Can we check something before we go any further.

If you remove the Linksys device from your configuration and connect directly to the Cisco router, do you have Internet connectivity?  Could you verify this please?

Good, that answers one of my questions.  As theras2000 was asking before, do you have pppoe setup?  Is it required for your dsl?

Your ISP must have given you some instruction on configuration.  Either (1) PPPOE, (2) DHCP, or (3) Static IP.  It's usually something along these lines.  We need to know if they gave you a static IP or a dynamic one.  

Is this linksys device supported by your ISP?  If so, you should be able to get free support from them to verify that it is setup correctly.  You can test it by directly connecting a computer to it (eliminating the cisco device).  This would guarantee that at least one device is working properly.

I am not sure abou ISP protocol, but i think we have PPPoe because I have one billion router, it's working fine, presently we are getting internet from billion & It's configured by PPPoe.

Thanks

OK, so lets assume PPPOE.  

I would test the linksys bridge configuration next.  If you connect a computer directly to the Linksys device and set it up for PPPOE you should be able to connect to the Internet.  Otherwise, the Linksys device is not set up for bridge mode.
