Can your gateway connect directly to a DSL modem? If so, does the gateway's console have the capability to enter authentication information like the username and password for the ISP DSL network?

The MultiVOIPs can be connected directly to a DSL modem, but do not have the ability to enter user names or passwords required to authenticate to a DSL network. The DSL modem must have a static public IP address and the connection to the DSL network must be automatic (always connected).
