Switching ISP need reconfigure Cisco Router

Hello Experts,

I currently have a Cisco - 857W ADSL Wireless Router using DSL from AT&T. I want to switch over to AT&T U-Verse. Can I use the same router? If not, what Cisco model would you guys recommend for a small business (10 people)?


Cisco - 857W ADSL Wireless Router Interfaces:
4 x network - Ethernet 10Base-T/100Base-TX - RJ-45
1 x modem - ADSL - RJ-11 ( WAN )
1 x management - console - RJ-45
1 x network - Radio-Ethernet

Osmoze,

Cisco and AT&T confirmed that this Cisco ADSL modem/router can ONLY be used with ADSL service and NOT AT&T Uverse.

You can use the same router , just you have to modify the credential for the adsl line ,from the At&t ones to the new isp , normally when you ll subscribe new adsl line you ll get the credential usr/passord in the contract .
then go to browser and open page with the router  addresse IP , you ll open cisco SDM  there you can change the information with the new.

My main question is, will the RJ11 port on the Cisco which currently does DSL, also work with U-Verse?

I'dont know what type of cable you are using in your contry , but if the new ISP provide adsl trought téléphonique lines (RJ11)  , the answer is YES  ,the same port in the router will do the job for you .just remember to change the setting in the router (look at the VCI / VPI the isp uses they may not be the same )

I am from California, USA. U-Verse is a fiber technology.

Will the RJ11 port on the Cisco ADSL router, also work with U-Verse which is fiber based but still works through a phone line. U-Verse is NOT DSL technology.

the answer is not deleted , here's the texte from the link


An RJ11 connection is no different for U-Verse than with any other telephone wiring installation. The conductors are referred to as "tip" and "ring" or T & R. On an RJ11 jack, you will normally find red, green, yellow, and black wires attached to tie points. The incoming T lead goes to the green wire and the R lead goes to the red wire, although it ordinarily doesn't matter if you reverse them.

 The yellow and black wires are used for the 2nd line of a two-line phone.

 The color code on common inside wiring (consisting of 4 separate pairs), is...

 Pair 1: T/R = Blue/Blue White
 Pair 2: T/R = Orange/Orange White
 Pair 3: T/R = Green/Green White
 Pair 4: T/R = Brown/Brown White

 If you're connecting an incoming U-Verse service (or any telephone service) to an RJ11 jack with such wire, you'd normally use Pair 1 connected to green/red on the jack. However, you could use Pairs 2, 3, or 4 if desired. In my home, my U-Verse enters on Pair 2, while Pair 1 in the same cable is the in-house trunking for my landline phones.

Do I need to configure the Cisco Router to tell it that the data coming in on the RJ11 is no longer ADSL but its U-Verse?
