    Hey everyone,

    I thought this was the best place for this but if it needs to be moved please feel free.

    First things first I guess.

    I used to be a CCNA, I let it lapse years ago because I have no clients that use it that doesn't already have a Cisco Contract until, you guessed it, Today. LOL

    I have a client with a confusing piece of equipment, the bottom of the box says Cisco861W.

    The web interface says Cisco Aironet 800 Access Point.

    What little documentation I have found calls it a Router.

    With their username and password I was able to get in to it and get a copy of the config.

    Right now it is setup static IP address that it gets from their DSL modem that is doing PPPOE.

    What they want to do is convert the DSL modem into a bridge and change this Cisco equipment so it does the PPPOE.

    Changing the DSL into bridge mode is easy, its the cisco equipment that I need help with.

    I have found some docs on the web, but they talk about 860 series Routers, not this "Access Point" maybe they are one in the same but... I am questioning it.

    These are the docs and links I have found
    https://supportforums.cisco.com/thread/212449
    http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/rou...0/software/configuration/guide/SCG880-860.pdf

    I can go back to the clients tomorrow if you need me to run anything on the equipment and get more information.

    Any assistance would be greatly appriciated.

    Thank you in advance

    Can't say i've come across anythin in the 800 series, but i've always associated the 'Aironet' name with wireless AP's from Cisco!?!

    I guess if it is a router with wireless capabilities though then it may well be one in the same. I assume it's quite a small company is it? Do they use this as a wireless AP? Or do they have a seperate solution for wireless access etc?

    Yes, they are using it for wireless access and yes it is a small company.

    1 main office and 3 satellite offices, these satellite offices have 1 computer

    Not had experience with them myself, not entirely sure on theavailable features etc on these but that second link you added looks like it should contain everything you need. The 861w will be part of the 860 series ISR's.

    Failing that there is a setup video on Youtube which may give you a few hints and tips, but not sure if that is an enterprise setup or home setup that it covers.
    Cisco 861W setup - YouTube

    Just have to read through the doc you have and see what it has in it. I'm sure there will be others here who can offer more constructive assistance but I would defo start with that manual you linked to.

    What happens when you telnet/ssh or use the console port?

    I used putty into the console port to get a copy of the config. It works fine.

    Do you need me to try something?

    If you have the copy of the config then it might be worth posting it up here, so everyone can see what the setup is at the moment.

    Just obviously take care you are not posting any private info, blot that out if you do post! ;-)

    Here goes, I think I got everything important removed

    the first link above shows this as an example

    Would this simple example be enough?

    Yes, but I wouldn't use PAP since it sends your passwords in cleartxt.
    My 877 is configured like this:

    Code:
    Interface Dialer0
     ppp authentication chap callin
     ppp chap hostname username@PROVIDER
     ppp chap password 7 04715D501B136E

    OK, so I called the ISP, No Chap, PAP only, figures!

    I got the config setup and from within the Router I can ping google, Yahoo, Etc. but I cant from a workstation, name "google" or an IP.

    I think the Router may be bad but I have a call into Cisco. We'll see

    No, the problem is that before you had the DSL router doing the NAT.
    Now that the Cisco is your separation point, you will have to configure NAT on it.

    Can you post the running config (without sensitive info)? I'll give you the config you need to add :)

    The config is above, minus and adding the few changes for the dialer, sorry, I don't have a current copy yet.
    I think I figured it out though, can you tell me if this looks right

    No, that doesn't look right. For starters, you don't have an ATM interface
    Code:
    interface vlan 1 
    ip nat inside
    interface dialer 0 
    ip nat outside
    
    ip nat inside source list 1 interface Dialer0 overload
    
    access-list 1 permit 192.168.101.0 0.0.0.255
    
    
    - define NAT inside and outside
    - identify the subnets that need to be translated (acl 1)
    - Don't forget the overload keyword which enables Port Address Translation

    Duh, ATM, LOL

    Sorry, found a sample out on the internet and pasted it but forgot to change the port to dialer0, LOL

    Thank you for the heads up about the overload though

    So, it should look like this

    Does that look better?

    God, its amazing what you forget when you don't use it everyday. :((

    Interesting that I did not need that line but it worked great.

    Thank you for the assistance Sir.

    You are a gentleman and a scholar

    I don't see a place to change the status from problem to solved, is the function enabled?

    Just noticed there's one more line you can get rid of:

    ip nat inside source list acl1 pool pool1

    Just let the thread fade out now it's solved...

    Lol, no problem at all!

    I figured without the other line that that one was not needed either, so I didn't put it in and it worked perfectly. ;)
