Bridging my DSL modem?

I am on DSL with a SE567 modem and a Cisco E2500 router.
I am trying to hook up a Foscam camera to the internet, but it seems to hang up on the modem.

I "think" I can fix that by bridging the modem and doing the PPPoE in the router; I have found instructions for that on the internet.
Will that fix my problem?
Any advantages or disadvantages to doing it?

Since first posting this I have gone ahead and done it everything works fine. In fact my connection seems to be significantly faster; tests at 2MBPS compared to 1.5MBPS before.

So, is there any downside to this; besides it not being the normal method and the potential for it being confusing if any hardware goes bad?
