What you need to do is set the router to make the connection for you.
Connect it the way you had it, modem to the WAN/Internet port on the router, your PC plugged into one of the 4 other ports. Open a command prompt and type ipconfig /release and hit Enter then type ipconfig /renew and hit Enter. You should see an IP address like 192.168.0.XXX where XXX is 2 or more. Once you see that type the Default Gateway ( should be 192.168.0.1 ) into the address bar of a browser and hit Enter. Box should pop up asking for a user name and password. UN = admin leave the PW blank and hit Enter. This should bring you into the router. Just go through the wizard, it should prompt you for a new PW ( remember it ), set the time zone, then the connection type is User name/Pasword connection ( PPPoE ) enter the user name and password from the connection on your PC, leave the rest of the stuff on that page alone. I don't think you'll need to clone your MAC address but you might. Go through the rest and make sure you Save Changes.
All this did was move the connection from your PC to your router.
If it doesn't work. Surf back into the router and try cloning the MAC address. Look in the manual for the router, if its not printed it should be on the CD, for how to do that.
If it still doesn't work just hook the PC back up to the modem, do the release/renew and then connect with the connection on your PC.
Hope this helps
