Which ADSL router do you have?  Brand, model, and any firmware revision level.

Based on what I have read in the users guide your ADSL modem does not seem to support VPN.  It can allow VPN traffic to pass through it. But you need something else to talk to the PIX.

Window and Linux both support being a PPTP client.

ok,so how would I actually need to get my PIX to at least start having internet access through the 1MB ADSL broadband + the Dynalink modem.

There are two ways.

1) If possible set the dynalink to run as a bridge and configure PIX to be a PPPoE client (http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/110/pppoe-for-pix501.html).   This way the outside interface of the PIX has the public IP address and it can do all of the NAT'ing, routing, and access control.

2) If the dynalink can't run in bridge mode, then it needs to be the PPPoE client.  Then you need two private IP subnets.  One will be between the PIX and dynalink and this will be the "outside" private network and the PIX interface will be the outside interface.  Then your "inside" private network will be the inside interface of the PIX and this will be the network where all of the clients will be.  The PIX will now act as a router between your inside network and the ADSL modem.  The PIX will still need to do overload NAT (inside-private to  outside-private), but the Dynalink will also do NAT, outside-private to public.
