Connecting Linksys WRT54GS to Plusnet Fibre/Openreach Modem

Hi there I'm trying to connect a Linksys WRT54GS to Plusnet Fibre/Openreach Modem but I'm not having any joy. I set the connection type to PPPoE (Keep Alive: Redial Period 30s) and put in my @plusdsl.net username but when I click connect it says Can not get a IP address from PPPoE server. I tried putting in my plusnet password as well, although the support pages say it's not needed for fibre, but still no joy. Does anybody know if I need to set a host name and/or domain name or is there some other setting that I'm possibly missing? Thanks.

Make sure you plug an ethernet cable between LAN port of OR modem >> WAN port of WRT54GS, just plusnet username and password.
It sometimes may takes > 2 mins to connect
