DSL Modem configuration to allow server port 80 requests to come through.

I need to tell my zhone 6211 DSL modem to forward port 80 requests to a specific ip address. I don't know how to get at it. I have a Linksys Wireless router between my PC and the DSL modem.
How do I talk to my DSL modem and how do I configure it to allow my server requests to come through?

That router is already set up to forward port 80 requests. the problem i'm having is that the DSL modem/router/bridge is blocking them and requiring a user logon. I need to access that machine. Well, actually I just figured out how to do that so now the question is how do I tell it to let server requests come through to the linksys router. I was able to login as user user but that gives me (most likely) limited access to the zhone 6211 machine, I think. Not sure though since I don't know the admin login and don't know what those screens look like.

The folks at goldenwest gave me the answer: I logged in to my linksys router and selected the internet connection type of PPPoE. That required my username and password, which I entered and that took the dsl modem out of the picture. Worked like a charm.
