I then spent 30 minutes scratching my head as it would sync but not authenitcate with Zen nor obtain an IP.
in the end I switched over to PPPoE and it worked, it has resynced once this afternoon but is stable.
I had some connection problems since Feb and am beginning to wonder if the two things are related because different encapsulation is being used, perhaps because an engineer forgot to set PPPoA on the MSAN?
Although I did connect a BT 2700 during the troubleshooting and that seemed to connect ok on PPP over ATM.
Just wondering out of curiosity more than anything else.
Note: I don't lay turf for anyone. astro or otherwise, all views and opinions expressed are my own based on experience.
