    Hi guys, basically I have a ISDN WAN cisco 2600 interface card sitting at home in my (u guessed it 2600) was wondering if this interface can be used with and for a DSL connection. Of course basically isdn and dsl use rj 11 cables and suppose are used over the phone line, so at the heart basically same technology , but Im sure there are differences? Can this be done?
    If so any cisco experts banging around able to tell me how I would config this for a pppoe session.
    Thank you

    Unfortunately no this cannot be done. ISDN is a 2b+1d configuration, DSL is ATM at heart. However depending on how many ethernet interfaces you have on that router you can make it work with the ISP provided dsl modem.

    So I can config the 2nd fe port on the router if I wanted to for the DSL,then it would just be the same as DocLarge' config on this page right?

    You can configure the 2nd FE port to connect to the DSL modem yes. The DSL modem will convert the ATM (dsl) to ethernet so the router can understand. You should depending on the code of your router beable to make the port connected to the modem a dhcp port and pull an address just like your computer would. As long as you can do that the rest is easy to work out.
