I cant figure out how to set up my wireless with my router

I have a westell versalink 327w router from verizon dsl that came with an installation cd that no longer works. We recently had to reset the modem, and now we can no longer access the internet through the wireless. Settings had to be changed on the desktop wired computer too. We cannot access the internet without first allowing the LAN connection to be established, and then we must dial a broadband (PPoE) connection to access the internet. I have looked at the settings inside the router and can create a PPP connection inside it that will allow me to access the internet through my wireless laptop, but when i do this i cannot figure out the settings to allow my desktop computer to get online. Does anyone know what my problem is, and how to fix it?

yeah, i called them and they didn't understand what my problem was, and i could understand the guy that was talking either. I think there was just a general communication problem between us, but either way, nothing was solved by the phone call

the disc they supplied doesn't deal with wireless so we are on our own. I saw an application at Fry's for $40 which I may need to get if I ever want to go wireless.
