Will issuing the command poff do it?
I have a D-Link DI-704P router, and an ADSL modem, and all I did was to give my username and password in the admin setup of the router. This is explained very well in the router's manual. Then the router negotiates the dialup of the ADSL modem. You will then need to run netconfig as root and restart X afterwards by Ctl + Alt + Backspace and then log back in with startx.
