Specs: Windows XP, intel 4
How do I get the above components configured to the internet? The main AT&A line is hooked to a splitter in the basement. Can I split off the splitter? I also need to know which protocol and connection numbers to enter for connectivity. I've researched numerous articles and they say the ME can handle it, the instructions just seem contradictory. Any suggestions other than to say it can't be done?

Shouldn't be a problem:

as long as you have DSL internet service with AT&A (whatever that is). They should be able to provide the physical DSL connection for your modem. Then to get online you'd use the modem software.

Was the Actiontec DSL modem supplied to you by "AT&A"? If you already have an "AT&A" supplied modem, you will need to connect a router to it then connect any additional PCs to the router, either wirelessly or via ethernet cables. You can NOT use more than one DSL modem.

Actiontec modems come with installation discs that do almost everything for you. But you will need some information from AT&T such as username and password, and DNS addresses and Gateway address.
