  When does this error messege pop up?

Also please use "service password-encryption" command, so that we will not be able to see ur password.

Or remove the password from the Config before posting.

Dont worry about the error message, technically its correct as interface BRI0 in your config has `no ip address' configured. But the virtual interface Dialer1 is using the BRI0, thats the one that has an address configured and is doing the IP processing.

try `sh ip int d1' that's the command you should be using.
