Linksys BEFSR41 v2 router - Static IP configuration

    Hi, my question is regarding configuring the Linksys BEFSR41 v2 router. My internet connection to my ISP consists of a normal CAT5 cable that goes into my ethernet port.
    The ISP authenticates me using a combination of:
    1. A static IP address assigned to me - say
    2. My MAC address
    3. A userid-Password set

    Imagine an office LAN setup with internet access only through a proxy server which authenticates using all the 3 mentioned above. Now what do I do if I need to connect to this proxy server through my Linksys BEFSR41 v2 router?

    My problem is that if I use the 'static IP' option to configure my router with my ISP, I do *not* have any option to specify the userid and password which my router needs to send (alongwith the Static IP and MAC addresses) to my ISP to authenticate.

    Can someone help me out here please? I was wondering if there is any firmware upgrade or such?

    Sounds like your a DSL user, am I correct?

    If so, on the Setup tab when opening your router admin console, select connection type of PPoPE
    This will allow you to configure the connection
    Check with your ISP as well, they can confirm that for you
