Comments on: Cisco 877 TPG Config Dave Heavy Industries - blog Tue, 15 Oct 2013 13:29:58 +0000 hourly 1 By: Daniel Daniel Tue, 15 Oct 2013 13:29:58 +0000 Hi Dave,

I’m new to cisco products and have used the above config and the dialer is getting the static tpg address so it’s connected and I can ping google from the console but after I then plug in a laptop and get the deco address I can not get to the Internet.

The tracert to google gets as far as and then stops there how do I get this to work?

Any help would be massively appreciated this is my third day at it and your advice has been the most helpful sofar.

Thanks for replying!

By: admin admin Thu, 05 Jan 2012 21:47:07 +0000 oh – and you know you can purchase a smartnet contract for it and claim a month later right?

By: admin admin Thu, 05 Jan 2012 21:44:26 +0000 sure can… the basics of it are to assign a vlan to an fe port (connected to the dsl modem), and assign a pppoe dialer to that vlan.
vlan 5
name pppoevl
int fe3
switchport access vlan 5
int vlan 5
ip address dhcp !not really needed, but will help in configuring your dsl modem
pppoe enable group global
pppoe-client dial-pool-number 1

By: Scott Scott Thu, 05 Jan 2012 08:13:20 +0000 Thanks for a great config. I know a couple of mates use it.

Unfortunately my 877 had a dead ADSL port. The CD light just flashes, but it doesn’t sync.

Because of this, I was thinking about using a cheapy adsl modem in bridged mode, then using on of the FE ports connected to my 877.

Is it possible to have the PPPoE config and all that other stuff outside if the dialer interface? Or is that the only WAN interface that I would be able to implement the commands on?

Feel free to submit any ammendments and I’ll append them to the post

there you go bud.
I might write an article for this when I get a chance, I get alot of EE questions about it.

I find setting up a tftpserver, copy the config over, edit in notepad++ and then recopy the config to the router as startup-config and reload. – at least for the first config load on a new router.
of course this means if you make a mistake, you may not be able to get back into the router, so have a console cable handy.

otherwise, when you get more proficient at modifying config, you can do this live.

I am a bit of a newbie.

Is there a link you cant point me to that outlines the process of downloading to a router a config and activating and saving that config on the router?

Thanks heaps
