I’m using a Cisco VA887 as a modem, and here is the config, which should work with most UK ISPs.
I also used the 887 as a PPPoE router previously and here is my config for that.
My unit has had the fan removed, hence the ‘nolog’ option for the fan.
To enhance passive cooling, I removed two plastic parts (one of which held the fan) on the fan side, and on the other side I removed the two metal ‘sides’, which were blocking any cross ventilation. The unit runs a lot cooler now without the fan.
You will also note that the MTU has been set to 1508 for *both* the ‘Ethernet0’ and ‘Vlan1’ interfaces. This enables my PPP config to use an MTU of 1500 and prevent fragmentation.
