Hello there.

Could somebody tell me if this is a problem that AT&T has to fix or do I really don't know what I am doing?

When I connect the Router (Cisco 1841) to the Demarc I can see the activity on both ends but when trying to start configuring the office's network, I get no access to the Internet. On the router I see:



MISWAL01#
MISWAL01#sh ip int brief
Interface                  IP-Address      OK? Method Status                Protocol
FastEthernet0/0            10.10.10.10     YES TFTP   administratively down down

MISWAL01#
*Sep 27 22:07:22.423: %LINEPROTO-5-UPDOWN: Line protocol on Interface Serial0/0/0, changed state to down
MISWAL01#


Is this a line down?

Also, Is it a must to connect the US Robotics modem that send attached with the router?  If yes, how?

After all is working, I am adding a small Netgear switch.  Schematics and pics are a plus!

Thank you in advance!

Sounds like this router's uplink is not configured.  What type of connection is AT&T providing?  DSL, T1, MPLS, etc?  Did AT&T provide any info on the connection's settings?  IP address, DHCP available, etc.  And which port on the router is the AT&T connection plugged into?

The connection is a T1

We were provided the WAN Link IP Address, AR Serial INT IP Address, CR Serial INT IP Address and the WAN Link SUbnet Mask.

The port that it connectes to in the router is F0/0

We noticed that our side interface counters keeps the keepalives in count, and the Carried Detect (CD) led is steady green. During the up/up status we try pinging to the wan side of the serial line without success.

All fixed now.  After 4 days of re-scheduling from wonderful AT&T, the tech realized that they shipped the router without the encapsulation (PPP) configured.  Go figure...

Thanks, eeRoot for the attention.
