Weird problem configuring a router with a DSL Modem

Here is a diagram of the described network.

I have a Zyxel 623 DSL modem plugged into Fa0/1 on the 7206. Fa0/1 is configured to obtain its IP via DHCP. Fa0/0 on the 7206 is connected via ethernet to the uplink port on the 1900. Plugged into the switch is a Cisco 1700 router and a laptop PC. The 7206 is configured to be a DHCP server for the 172.16.35.0 /24 network configured on Fa0/0 (connected to the switch).

Problem

I have a default route configured on the 7206 to point all traffic out fa0/1 (connected to the DSL modem) but nothing plugged into the switch can pass traffic out to the internet. On the 7206 I can ping out to the internet just fine, but on anything plugged into the switch I can not. there is connectivity between the switch and the 7206 (I can ping loopbacks on the 7206 from the laptop) but no traffic is hitting the internet.

On the 7206 I have a static default route set to forward everything destined for the internet to go out fa0/1. Hosts plugged into the switch are pulling an IP from the 172.16.35.0 /24 range and DNS server addresses from the DHCP service as well. For DNS I am using my ISP's name servers. The default gateway is 172.16.35.1, the IP address of Fa0/0.

Logically speaking, if I initiate a ping request from the 1700 or the laptop the device should hand the request down to the default gateway (the 7206 fa0/0 interface) then the 7206 should forward the request out fa0/1 based on the static route. This is not occurring for some reason. Can someone possibly give me some insight into why this isn't working?

    is the dsl modem acting as a pass through? which means that the 7200 is performing all of the pppoe negotiation. if so your going to need some nat going on.. this is one way of setting it up

    also heres something else that may be affecting it. if the dsl modem is the router for the dsl are you using the same ip segment on both sides? ex dsl -ip- 7200-ip- lab

    I'm sorry, it's just a regular dhcp connection. No PPoE, no authentication. For all means and purposes it functions just like a cable modem in bridge mode. Whatever public IP it pulls it assigns to the device plugged directly into it.

    My first thought would be NAT, the second would be the default route point to a FastEthernet interface which is multi-access. Try a debug ip packet to see if you're getting "encapsulation failed" messages.

    BTW, there are many lesser routers you coul use for your DSL connection icon_wink.gif

    NAT or PAT should solve the problem. Private Ip address are not routable over the internet

    Private IP address ranges are

    10.0.0.0-10.255.255.255
    172.16.0.0-172.31.255.255
    192.168.0.0-192.168.255.255

    Have a good day icon_lol.gif

    I was trying to avoid using nat if possible because the IOS that was on the router didn't support it (which was very odd to me.) I updated the OS and fixed my problem.

    I'm sort o surprised that the OS didn't support nat though..

    I'll check on Monday when I get back to work and get back to you on that. I believe it was 12.23x but I don't recall the features.
