ATT DSL Modem Settings on SMC Wireless ADSL Router

I recently purchased an  SMC 300Mbps 802.11n Wireless-N ADSL2/2 Modem/Router AP
and am trying to set it up at home on my AT&T DSL.

The router sees the DSL line, it's giving me information about it.  It just doesn't see to be taking my PPPoE information and logging into the network, getting an IP address etc.   So in turn, no internet.

I'm putting the following in the PPPoE settings:
VPI/VCI     0 / 35
Encapsulation:  LCC
Then I've got my normal dsl login id/psw
MTU 1492 - I've also tried 1454
There are other settings like QoS and these other thing that I think only matter if you have multiple VC's as you can configure it with 8.

Anyone ever set one of these up on ATT/Bellsouth/SBCglobal  DSL?

I looked on DSL reports to get the VPI/VCI  numbers.   I've always used PPPoE ... I do believe on past routers, but I'll dbl check that with my current one.

I don't really get an error when trying to connect to the dsl network.  I'll copy what the log gives me and post later...may be tomorrow as I am at work currently.

Yes, I've seen the Showtime indication.   Not sure what it shows now.  I'll have to continue this when I get home so I can tell you exact.  What doest that mean?  Showtime that is...
It does show me stats on noise, readiness etc.  It's definitely seeing the dsl line, it's just not making that final bridge, getting me an IP from the network and all.

"Showtime" means the DSL negotiation is complete and there's a working ATM link between your modem and the Central Office DSLAM. Without that you're going nowhere.

It should log something along the lines of PPP or LCP up/down/fail if it can't negotiate a succesful connection. What did you have before the new router, are the config details the same ?
Have had a Netgear 54g wireless and right now a Belkin N router.   The settings on them are very basic.   PPPoe and just   name/password and MTU setting.    Doesn't even let you change the other settings.

FIXED

Got home and decided to start from scratch.  Reset the router and ran the setup Wizard this time through the router.

Set the VPI/VCI to 0/35   put in my PPPoE settings and noticed it set he MTU to 1492
The QoS was set to UBR (I don't know if that even mattered, but what ever)

After all that, it connected and I am now, using it as I type here.

Thanks for all the suggestions!
