Lets start at the beginning, you should have a DSL/CABLE modem that connects you to the internet to begin with now. It would be helpful to know the Manufacturer and model of that device. There were probably two possibilities on how you had your internet set up before. The modem could be a modem/router with only one port in which the router supplied the username and password to access the internet. If this is the case you will need to hook a computer up to the modem directly access its default IP address usually 192.168.1.1 or .254. To access this device you will have to manually set your IP address to a address that is on the same subnet. You do this by going to network connections in control panel right clicking the Local Area Connection and clicking properties. Then scroll down in the box until you see TCP/IP click on it and hit the properties button. Set your ip address to something like 192.168.1.50 and a subnet of 255.255.255.0. You will need to change the routing pattern to Bridged Ethernet. This will allow your new router to do all the work. You will then need to hook your modem directly to the WAN port on your router and connect your computer to one of the switch ports on the router. You will then need access your router by using 192.168.1.1 or .254. You will need to set the PPoE Information i.e. username and password. Now you will need to go back to your network connections and change your ip address back to the obtain automatically. Your internet should kick on and start working. If i have made any wrong assumptions please let me know and I will follow up with a more detailed response.
