Cisco 678 ADSL migration to Cisco 1417 ADSL

I have a Cisco 678 ADSL router provided by my ISP. The ISP has given me login access to the local Cisco 678 router.

I would like to switch out the Cisco 678 NON-IOS router with a Cisco 1417 IOS enabled router.

I cannot get the ADSL (ATM0) line to EVER come up, it's always DOWN/DOWN.

I have configured the VPI/VCI (0/35). When I run debug atm commands I get the 0x8 status message and the line always is down/down.

ANY help would be appreciated.

I am running static IP, and do not use PPoE.

The ISP tech tells me the Cisco 1417 MUST support DMT, CAP or G.Lite encoding and RFC1483 routing.

Thank you.

can you post the configuration of your 1417 ? Also, which IOS version are you running ?

Not sure if you have already looked at this document, it talks about Layer 1 troubleshooting on the 1417:
