Thanks for the help so far...

The situation is this: The ADSL belongs to my landlord and is located
in her office. She's letting me set up wireless through her
connection, but knows nothing about how her ADSL is set up.

Tonight I am going to be able to play around with the settings again to
see if your suggestions work.
