Cisco 836

  1. hi everybody

    i know that the ISDN port of the cisco 836 (ADSL over ISDN router)
    provides ISDN dial backup and out-of-band management. can this router
    be also employed as an ISDN router? or is the dial backup feature
    supposed to be used only for the management of the router itself?

    you can use any interface as you like ;
    the atm for adsl, the isdn for dialup/ddr or backupinterface;
    we are using on the atm to connect to adsl and the isdn to another small
    office ....
    kind regards

    It appears to be a perfectly normal BRI interface you can tweak into
    everything you could tweak a 1603's BRI or a WIC-1B.
    No, that is just marketing gibberish. In fact, dial backup is the
    one thing that is *NOT* supported fully in plain 12.3, as the
    "backup interface" command set is missing from the IP loads on the
    entire 8xx product line (yet feature navigator pretends it would be
    there). There appears to be a special feature set that contains it,
    though (in 12.3(something)XM or somesuch, it is even part of the IP
    load again).
