Cannot get PPTP to work on Trendnet Router -Solved

SOLVED! Trendnet Router does not support PPTPoA which is what my ISP uses.

I've read the manual, googled intensely, but no joy.

Today I bought a Trendnet TW100-S4W1CA router. This has to connect via a SpeedTouch Home ADSL modem using PPTP. The idea is to replace Winroute on a PC - which incidentally works OK.

The Trendnet manuals and website tell you next to nothing about setting up PPTP.

On the PPTP setup page I am asked to enter 2 IP addresses. I assume one is for the Router WAN port and one is the Speedtouch IP address.

However, whatever I do, I cannot connect to my ISP and I cannot ping either of the two addresses I've entered.

Any help from somebody who's got this set up will be appreciated. I cannot get help from the ISP till Monday.
