This means you have to set up the DSL connection in this router.
Your computer works then just normal as DHCP-Client.
In this case you don´t have to set up a DSL connection in your computer.
You probably have to edit /etc/network/interfaces now manually, because
pppoeconf has automatically edited this file.

I only have this file for direkt DSL connection without router. Which
means I can´t tell exactly what has to be changed there.

But you probably will need this:

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

Every line else should start with #.

BEFOR editing this file, do a backup somewhere!

sudo update-rc.d -f ppp remove
sudo update-rc.d -f pppd-dns remove

Reboot and see if it works.

good luck
