You need to find out if it is possible to put the ADSL modem/router into "numbered mode", and then enable/copy the PPOE username and password to your ASUS Router. Then connect the ASUS WAN interface directly to the LAN interface of the MODEM.

I just looked at the Guide for the DSL-2750U, it appears you can put it into Bridge Mode, but you then need to configure your ASUS with all the required PPOE Settings.
