Chances are your router has an IP address. You need to set this address to be your defauly gateway. Do you know if your router has a little DHCP server in it? If so, you should just be able to configure your network card to use DHCP and you should be set. Otherwise you'll need to assign an IP address to your computer and plug in the router's IP address by hand.

My router is an old PC running Linux, and it connects directly to Verizon DSL no problem. You should look into rp-pppoe (a PPPoE client for *nix). I've used it for some time on different DSL set ups and it has always done the job for me. You can find rp-pppoe at .
