Yes, you can use the 5100. I've got a 4100 and a 5100 and they both work fine.

EDIT: Aparently, you're using SBC, as am I.

Call them and explain what happened. They might ship you a replacement unit.

All DSL modems do the same thing by providing net connectivity but if your modem is one of the 'dumb' modems or whatever that dont need no login/password then you'd need ot get a replacement from your ISP

They're all the same, even if you don't get one from your ISP they are all configurable. PPPoe, DHCP, whatever you want. You'll probably just have to call your ISP to have them configure it, or walk you through configuring it over the phone. Worst case scenario is that they have a technician come out to your house to set it up. Just try to get a new one shipped to you from your ISP. If they want to charge you for one ask them which model they are going to ship you, then look around for it online.
