I am trying to help my Dad set up his ADSL connection and have run into some
problems. He has a Draytek Vigor 2200 USB ADSL router with an Alcatel USB
ADSL modem plugged into it. His provider is BT Openworld.

The problem is simply that the router seems to initiate dialing via the
modem, but something fails during this process and ultimately the router
does not log in and get a WAN IP address.

In the logs I can see:

PPP Closed : LCP Time-out (PPPoA)
Can anyone tell me what this means and what I might have to do to resolve
the problem please?

Thanks in anticipation
