Try using Firefox again. Ignore any instructions Verizon gave you.

You don't do any setup on any Verizon site. You do it on the Web server
inside the modem by putting your username and password in the right places

that. However, it also sounds like you have no default route, probably as
a side effect of your experiments with PPPoE.
