Default dd-wrt failed to get an IP address from TekSavvy

My Linksys WRT54GL with dd-wrt installed is having trouble connecting to the internet.

I have confirmed my account is working because I can access the internet if I connect my computer directly to the DSL modem.

This is what I did:
- Connect my router's WAN port to the DSL modem
- Under the Setup/Basic Setup page, I typed in conneciton type PPPoE, my username and my psassword.
- Save, then apply changes

Under Status/WAN, login status shows "Disconnected". Click on the Connect button, go to a new page that shows connection type as disabled. After one second, it reload back to the status/WAN page with login status set back to Disconnected.

Anyone experienced with the same trouble? Any help is greatly appreciated.
