Cisco Router


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,

has anybody tried or got working a Cisco Router, specifically a 3620 on a FTTC/P connection?

I know Cisco IOS can handle PPPoE, isnt that what's required?

Yes, Cisco gear works just fine.
You need to create a Dialer interface and then make a routed port, or a vlan which is then assigned to a switchport, a PPPOE client utilising that dialer group.

Got the router working (using a cisco 1801) but the DSL rate seems to drop now and again.

Anybody got a working Cisco 18xx router with FTTC/P?

You'll find the CPU maxes out (on an 1841) when pushing through the full 40Mbps and using statefull inspection and NAT, though it can sustain the rate and I'm using it day to day quite happily.

1801 is only rated a few Mbps lower so should be similar, though I don't think you'll get away with an 80/20 connection. Any QoS might also tip it over the edge.

3620 isn't going to cut it, it's got half the rated performance of an 1801 at best, a quarter at worst.

I've seen a 2821 manage a lot better, though unlikely to be a router of choice for what I suspect is a home environment?

In addition to Anon's comments the 1801 has a crippled eth0 port so avoid using that.

I've swapped the Cisco 1801 for a pfsense with NAT disabled so all it's doing is routing - so far so good, I'll also see if the IP Profile goes up too.
