No, but you shouldn't need to do that.  Are you connecting to a wireless
router which is connected to the dsl line?  If so, you generally enter
the username and password information into the router.  Most of the dsl
modems and/or routers have an http interface that you can use to
configure them.  If you give us a router type, we might be able to help
more.
