Let's say that you do find the external IP, and that the login your ISP apparently provided you with is correct, and you do manage to login to the management interface of your DSLAM. Now what? What are you going to do? Do you know enough about DSL / DSLAMs to fix your problem? My guess is that your disconnects are caused by a bad connection between exchange and your home, or that your port speed is set to high. Ask your ISP to reduce your port speed, increase your SNR db levels, and send someone to take a look at your copper line.
