Actiontec / Verizon GT704WG Ver B - DSL Light Blinking


I just recently signed up for Verizon High Speed Internet and have received my start-up kit.  I have been trying this whole week to get my internet working.  Inside the package was the Actionec GT704WG Version B Gateway to setup my DSL.  I have everything connected right, but cannot connect to the internet.

I am running Windows XP and when I open up the Internet Connections folder, it shows that I am Connected, but the Internet Light does not illuminate and I never have seen it light up.  The DSL Light blinks and flashes. 

I have called tech support and they say they can't help me over the phone but verify the DSL and phone lines pass their test. 

I have no internet and my frustration continues to build for Verizon.  Has anyone encountered the same issue with DSL and this gateway?
