First thing they would have you do is restart the modem/router. (unplug the power and plug it back in)
If that doesn't help try a hard reset. ( push the reset button on the device and hold it for twenty sconds)
If the LAC gets a IP and gateway you should then be able to surf into the interface to set the log in for the ISP network.
See if that helps.

Most likely the connection software they provide is a PPPoE client. XP has the ability to set up a client with native software so again the provider supplied app is not needed. Aside from native and ISP clients the modems and routers in use today have built in clients that can take the place of the ISP's.
So if you are using the ISP's client to connect that means your modem is in a bridged mode that allows for signal translation to and from your network/PC and you should be able to delete their client and use the router for authentication on to their network. Once their client is gone it should allow for DHCP addressing to be accepted from the router to the PC. Not knowing the particulars of Verizon DSL it's hard to say what requirements they have for log in or address assignment. They would be your best source of information on their requirements and the settings needed to make your stuff work.

right click on th LAC and choose properties. Once in properties choose Internet Protocol TCP/IP and click "properties". Be sure that automatically obtain IP and automatically obtain DNS are checked and click OK and click OK to get out of properties. Now if you PC is accepting DHCP from the router you should be able to double click the LAC and get a status window with a support tab. click the support tab and note the default gateway, this is the DHCP Server and the address to access the modem/router interface where you can configure the client to do your sign in.
Note: Gaining access to the CPE(consumer premises equipment) usually requires a password and/or uid that varies from manufacturer to manufacture and can also be different if the CPE is provided by the ISP with its own firmware.
