Configuring Cisco 877 DSL Router with Verizon Business DSL

After spending the last 8 hours trying various configurations I am at a complete loss. Has anyone successfully replaced Verizon's Westell modem with a Cisco 877 DSL router?

I tried numerous examples that I was able to find on the web and on Cisco's website but never seem to be able to successfully establish a connection.

We have been assigned 1 static IP and the Westell is in bridge mode. Based on this I assume that I have to use RFC1483 Bridging, correct? I am not entirely sure about the encapsulation I am supposed to use, my best guess is aal5snap...

Any help would be appreciated!

VPI/VCI is 0/35 which I have applied to ATM0.1 with no effect. I am not sure what the old router's MTU is, if I remember correctly it's 1500.

Would the G.dmt DSL mode be causing any issue? I set the Cisco to auto...

Dear,

if ia m not wrong Cisco 877 comes with 4 10/100 LAN ports and 1 Rj 11 ADSL Port???,,,, and if you have ADSL connection from your ISP then you shoudl have Phone Cable (Rj11)......
you dont require to connect any device in between,simply connect ISP Cable to your Cisco-877 ADSL Port and start configuring your router...

the connection should be PPOE (you can ask ISP for connection type.

Hi Syed,

I'm not connecting any device in between, the idea is to replace the unreliable consumer router provided by Verizon with the Cisco 877. When I look at the old router's settings it doesn't have PPPoE selected, it simply says "Bridge" which I suspect is RFC1483.

Dear,

in bridge mode the router will not authenticate and there will be no internet in thsi case????,,,, i would suggest you cann your ISP and ask more settings..
MTU shoudl not eb a Issue, Ideally 1452 should work.
