i know some of you are using cisco routers for mlppp setups. i'm planning on going to 2x 25mb vdsl with a cisco router like this:
pfsense firewall -> cisco with two vdsl cards -> phone lines
i don't want the cisco to do any pppoe authentication, that will be done by pfsense. if i could do this with some used gear for under $1000 it'd be nice. any recommendations of parts or anyone want to sell me their setup?
It doesn't make sense why you would want to use the Cisco router like a set of overpriced VDSL2 modems. It would make a lot more sense having the PPPoE/MLPPP session terminate on the router.
