Ok First You should inform your ISP that you have purchased your Own ADSL Modem. They will Advise you if you can use your own equipment or not. I know SBC doesn't like other modems. If they ok using your own modem this is how you need to set it up. First turn off the computer and do not plug in the power to the modem yet. Second connect your Phone line going to your old DSL modem from the wall outlet to the black RJ-11 port on the back of the modem (labled port 5 in your manual). Third Connect your computers RJ-45 Port to the yellow port labled number 1. Turn your modem on first, then turn on your PC. You Will need the connection settings provided by your ISP which may include the Host and Domain name, Internet log on and password (usually an email address), Your DNS addres and your Fixed or Static IP address. Lastly your connection needs to be set to DHCP enabled.
