Default Belkin wireless router and BTinternet settings

I bought my dad a Belkin wireless router for Christmas. Now I have the problem of setting it up.
It has 4 LAN ports, and a built in ADSL modem. The model number is F5D7630-4A.
I want to connect the router to the main pc via wired LAN as the pc already has a NIC installed. Then I want to connect the laptop (Which has a built in wireless g network card), to the network and be able to use the internet through the router.
The problem is one of settings. On the router configuration page it asks me my connection type. The options are:

PPPoE
PPPoA
Disable Internet Sharing
Multiple protocol over ATM.

I have no idea which of these to choose, or what my settings should be. My ISP is BTinternet. I tried PPPoE, as that's what I thought it should be, but then it asks me for VPI/VCI settings. I have no idea what these are, let alone what I should set them at. At the minute I can't even get the main pc to access the internet through the router, and I can't find out what my settings should be.
Does anyone know what my settings should be???
Do I still need to install the BTinternet software on the pc???
Any help is very much appreciated, because I am starting to tear my hair out here!!!
