I want to make my Cisco 678 a DSL modem only

by kgifford / July 17, 2006 8:46 AM PDT

I recently got Qwest/Cisco 678 DSL. Now I have a new wireless router that I want to hook up to the Cisco 678 ethernet port. However, I need to disable one of the routing function, and I want to do it on the Cisco 678. Does anyone know the CBOS commands or can point me to a source? Please don't tell me to read the Cisco 678 Manual because it doesn't tell me enough on how to do it.

Thanks, Kerry.

Making my Cisco 678 a DSL modem only

Thanks for the link to Seanet. It has new info that I've not seen before. However, the article actually does not say that these steps will configure the 678 as a modem only nor does it say that it diable the routing function so that another device can handle it. However, I will try these steps and see if that works. You added "Set bridging enabled?" Not knowing what "set bridging rfc1483 enable" does but was willing to try something, I have done this once before (of course w/o the steps in the Seanet article), and that didn't work either. Are you saying I must do this after doing the Seanet steps?

Thanks, Kerry.

Bridging could disable the NAT and ROUTER. Cisco has fine call support centers I've used in the past. I will not offer any indepth discussion since you have to dive in and push along to by trying this.

You can always go back.

Set Bridging will do it?

Hey man, I'm not ignoring you in this forum. I happened to post in Broadband and then realized that I could get more response in a forum more closer to what my problem is related to. Anyway, thanks for replying. As I said in prior reply, I've tried setting bridging before, and it appears not to work. Armed with additional instructions from DLink as well, I've just haven't found the time to delve into this and try again. Yup, I've had to undo couple of times already, so nothing is really lost by trying.

I've been on Cisco's website, and I gather that everyone must have a service call number before tech support will yak at you, and I don't have a number.
