    I have the 768 Kbps broadband (PPPoE).

    The modem is Westell Wirespeed C90-36R516.

    I bought a Linksys Wireless-G SRX200 router. Configured the TCP/IP to DHCP for Windows XP to obtain IP address automatically. Set the DSL PPoE username and password. Set the router password. Setup complete.

    I am unable to connect to Verizon, just times out. I have to reconnect the ethernet directly to my laptop to gain connectivity.

    Let's see the IPCONFIG /ALL with the "ethernet connected directly".

    That appears to be a USB connection to the modem, is that correct?

    Correct, USB "Type B" connector to the back of modem, output to PC is an ethernet cable (e.g., the low rent DSL that uses filters on your phone line).

    You need to remove the USB connection, turn off the modem for 15 seconds, then connect the modem with the Ethernet connection to the computer directly. Reboot the computer and post another IPCONFIG /ALL

    I think I was confused earlier.

    I don't have a USB type B connection. It's a simple phone line with a line filter attached.
