Exclamation Verizon DSL/ROUTER troubles in MEPIS via USB

I am running Mepis 6 beta 4.

I have a Westel 6100 series DSL modem. the problem is that i have run out of ideas on making it connect to the internet via USB.

My modem is both a router and modem combined, and i have it connected to a USB cable as it is currently the only way i can connect it to my computer. I know that verizon uses PPPoE, and i have tried RP-PPPoE 3.8 from roaring penguin and, that was of no help. Also upon reading the info about rp-pppoe it said it was unnessecary with routers, which i dont know if my situation applies to that or not. From what i have read, i see that sometimes people get what they needed and typically people just have to buy a router, but again.. is my situation applying as I have a router.. or not.

maybe i dont have something configured right?..

I do get a connection when i use the IP address I have on WinXP, so i used those settings, but there is something in Linux for a broadcast address, and there is nothing i could find in windows about that, and the auto DHCP does not work.. so if anyone could be of assistance, it would be greatly appriciated.

Tyan trinity 400 (s1854)
256 mb ram
2 physical hds
- 7 gb (whole drive to MEPIS)
- 80 gb (2 parts, win part with secondary part [60gb\20gb])
pentII 450 (overclocked at 504mhz)
