There may be a couple of problems here. You may need to set up your username and password in the router itself, and you may even be able to fix it by going into the internet options in Internet Explorer and telling it to obtain an address automatically.
In my experience with DSL modems, they need to be set up to access the internet with the software that they send you, and you usually have a static IP address assigned to your computer. Your router, on the other hand, has its own IP address. It might be helpful to call your DSL provider for help, since they should be familiar with their own equipment.
