Configuring Cisco 877 DSL Router with Verizon Business DSL

After spending the last 8 hours trying various configurations I am at a complete loss. Has anyone successfully replaced Verizon's Westell modem with a Cisco 877 DSL router?

I tried numerous examples that I was able to find on the web and on Cisco's website but never seem to be able to successfully establish a connection.

We have been assigned 1 static IP and the Westell is in bridge mode. Based on this I assume that I have to use RFC1483 Bridging, correct? I am not entirely sure about the encapsulation I am supposed to use, my best guess is aal5snap...

Any help would be appreciated!
