I'm more of a web developer kind of guy with limited knowledge of networks, so if anyone can point in the right direction, I would be grateful.
I am replacing my satellite connection with a T1 I got for a good deal thru the phone company. I also managed to get my hands on a Netvanta 3200 router. My problem is I can't quite figure out how to set up the router and can't find any kind of guide that would explain what I need to set where.
I'm not sure what to do next on my troubleshooting journey.
-- Currently I have a Visio doc from the phone company that lists my ip range as xx.xxx.82.64 /29 Then it notes some Cisco 1721 with a .74 next to it and that has a line drawn to FairPoint Internet router with a .73 next to it.
Above that there is my circuit id, and an ip address that is xx.xxx.78.72
In the netvanta I have the interface setup using ppp encapsulation and have tried all the ips listed above. The ppp interface just does not seem to connect..
Output from netvanta:
