I don't know your router, but here's some info:

Start > Control Panel > Network Connections > Local Area Connection -(rightclick)- Properties
Click on "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" to highlight it, then click on the "Properties" button.
Click on the "Obtain an IP address automatically" option and then click "OK" and "OK" again.
Plug in the phone line into the 'broadband' socket of the router.
Open your browser and type in
Login: Administrator
Click on Speedtouch on the blue menu on the left.
Click on the "Set Up" link under 'Pick a task...'
Click the "Next" button on the popup window
Select Routed PPP then click "Next"
Select 0.38 from the list for VPI/VCI
Select PPP over ATM (PPPoA) for 'Connection Type'
Enter the username and password for your ISP broadband login. Click "Next"
