ADSL Problem

By santi24 ·
Can somebody help me with my problem on setting up my linksys router. Let me start from the start.
I have ADSL internet connection. when I want to connect to internet I must go to webportal of my ISP then I will input my user name and password. the problem is I want to share this internet connection using my Linksys BEFSR41 Router to my network. but my router only have a 6 type of Internet Connection (Static, PPPoE, RAS, PPTP, Heartbeat Signal and L2TP) I already tried PPoE but it doesnt work because of the Portal which will appear when im going to internet. What should I use on that Internet connection type. and can you teach me how to configure it. Thanks

when I want to connect to internet I must go to webportal of my ISP then I will input my user name and password....... That means you are accessing the internet through Dail-up, you will change the router configuration as an IP based, Select the PPOE and give the username, password then goto the next step and fix one IP for your Router. you should give the Router IP as a Gateway of your that you can increase the numbaer of system with the same IP network. [(or) you select the Static and fix one IP then do the same thing of the above.].

Note: if any problem you mail me at
