Can router 2500 be configured for DSL that requires authentication?

I want to replace my linksys router with a cisco 2500 series with 2 aui ports.  The aDSL modem will connect to the 2500  directly via ethernet cable.  currently on the Linksys I am required to put my ADSL account info in order to have a connection to my ISP.  How can I configure the 2500 to authenticate to my isp and pull a ip address from the ISP?.

I looked through the feature index on cisco's site, and none of the IOS there for the 2500 series support PPPOE.

If the modem does not have an internal router/w pppoe support, that linksys is one easy way.

I beleive your modem and ISP using PPPoE, you need to connect 2500 with AUI transciever to the modem with ethernet cable and configure 2500 for PPPoE dial, please see sample config below. Make sure you have right interface numbers.
Also, check if you 2500 IOS supports PPPoE.

I checked Cisco Feature Navigator and it says - no PPPOE support for 2500 platform, alas. Please ignore my previous message...You shold go with 1700 series (1720) with WIC-1-ENET module. I posted configuration from my 1720 at home...
