Hello world,

A friend of mine has recently subscribed to FYX's ADSL service. Unfortunately his pretty old FritzBox won't establish an PPPoA connection despite his settings are absoulutely correct. He has selected PPPoA with VCMUX capsulation and VPI/VCI values of 0 and 100 respectively, just as described on their website, but the FritzBox keeps saying that the PPPoA handshake is failing. We have also tried to let the FritzBox automatically detect ATM settings to no avail.

The same FritzBox had worked flawlessly for years on an WXC ADSL line with the very same settings.

Also the ADSL link is synchronizing with some 7 Mbps up and 0.8 Mbps down, so the issue is definitely somewhere on the ATM layer, something you can hardly debug as an end customer.

Has anyone experienced similar issues with FYX or a FritzBox? Any hints on how to resolve this?

Cheers!

assuming you have ruled out wrong username and password etc on the ISP side,  try factory resetting it and try again,using the wizard to create the new connection, ive seen this issue on the Fritz if you modify the wan settings this can happen, wont authenticate.

Thanks, Dan.

As the issue continues with a brandnew Linksys X1000 router bought at Dick Smith, the cause seems to sit on the network.

Try bridging the router directly to just 1 computer then try using the windows PPP dialler to connect. Make sure you have the windows firewall enabled as if it connects the computer will be assigned a public IP addr. And it will be connected directly to the net.

Make sure the connection is actually 'active' with FYX, the FYX system won't allow the user to connect until the order has fully completed. It's possible the new install or churn order hasn't been signed off my chorus yet.
