um...I have DSL and I don't have to put in a username or password... Just thought I'd point that out. Some ISPs don't require a username and password.
For me, I just plugged in my modem to the phone line, plugged in the router into that, and then I could get the wireless signal for my internet connection. If that's what you are doing ad it's not working, maybe your friend has a bad cable? Also make sure the internet connection is plugged into the WAN port of the router.
The color of the cable doesn't matter, they are sometimes just made different colors to blend in with surroundings I guess if you were to run it along the walls or edge of carpet.
