827 with PPPoE-Bell South


I have an 827-4v and am running into problems installing with PPPoE with Bell South. Does anyone have a working config using PPPoE, or better yet, a config for Bell South.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Leet us know what type of problems you are facing..But You will find a sample config for 827 router as a PPPoE client at...

For 827 troubleshooting guide, visit

I have a Carrier Detect, however, I am not receiving atm cells. I assume I would receive cell from the WAN side, even if my PPPoE and CHAP failed. It is not the ISP/Bell South as it functions with an extenal modem and D-Link Router.

Here is my config - I based it on one in my area that is currently working with Bell South.

Can you see any mistakes?

YES..You will receive the ATM cells even of the PPP fails or so..Pl. turn on the debug

debug atm packets

debug atm events

Now "shut" and "no shut" on the atm interface and see what debug reports..Thx..Tejal


I cannot see the following mandatory commands in your config.

vpdn enable

request dialin

protocol pppoe

You need this commands for it to work.

You can also try using built-in web configuration tool to configure it. [You can also configure PAT, Firewall etc..] through this tool If you need any furthur info on the tool, contact me.
