Problems with Router

I have recently purchased a Micronet Wireless ADSL2+ Kit from Maplin. I was told by a friend that configuration should not be a problem as most routers self configue. When I had plugged everything in I visited the congiuration page in Firefox and went to quick start. It then demanded several pieces of information from me regarding my ISP (waitrose.com broadband). These were:

Type of IP address(static, dynamic etc)
Encapusulation (PPPoE, PPPoA)
Muliplex (VC or LLC)
Virtual Circuit ID (VPI & VCI)

And naturally the username and password (don't worry, I know these!)

Could someone please tell me the the correct values or if this if not possible, tell me who I should go to to find out.

Thanks in advance.

ASDL Modem setting

Connection Type = PPPoA

VPI/VCI = 0/38

Encapsulation = VCMUX.

User Name & Password that you presently use to access your ISP service

I entered all of this in and it still didn't work,
I ran the system diagnostics and it gave me the following information:

>> Testing Ethernet LAN connection ...
PASS

>> Testing ADSL Synchronization .
PASS

>> Testing ATM OAM segment ping ...
PASS

>> Testing ATM OAM end to end ping ...
PASS

>> Ping Primary Domain Name Server .
SKIPPED

>> Ping click here ...
FAIL

Primary domain server should be set to auto if it can , in the WAN interface , set to DHCP client and DNS as auto .

It doesn't seem to let me change any of the above information. And it's still not working. I remember once when I was playing around with the settings, under status it said I was connected, which I do not get now. But it didn't actually work with the internet. Is there anyway I can disable the built in modem and connect it up to my old BT Voyager 210 ADSL router, which only required my username and password and worked without a hitch, first time round and just use the router for my wireless network.

Or is it that I've just bought a sub-standard router?

I don't thing you can disable the modem and just use the router

Do a reset on the router and enter the information that I listed and see if that will connection you the internet
