FTTC Config for Cisco Router

Use a Cisco 867VAE Router with Plusnet ADSL for years with no issues (Router connected directly to master socket).

 

Now upgraded to fibre and want to use the same router.

 

What config changes do I need to make in order to get the router to connect to the fibre circuit?

I am aware of the following connection details from plus net's website for fibre

Broadband username or login name

yourusername@plusdsl.net

Connection type or encapsulation

PPPoE Always On

Password

The password you use to log in to the Member Centre

VLAN

Active

VLAN ID (802.1q)

101

VLAN ID (802.1p)

0

 

Help appreciated.

Re: FTTC Config for Cisco Router

Hi, this will get you working natively:

 

!
interface Ethernet0
mtu 1512
no ip address
!
interface Ethernet0.101
encapsulation dot1Q 101
pppoe-client dial-pool-number 1
pppoe-client ppp-max-payload 1500
!

You may have a different pool number so change as required.

However, the 867 isn't supported for native FTTC and I often have crashes and upstream issues. You can configure the router for ethernet WAN mode and use a VDSL modem if you have one. Just add the following instead:

!

wan mode ethernet

interface GigabitEthernet1

no shut
no ip address
ip mtu 1492
duplex auto
speed auto
pppoe-client dial-pool-number 1
