Generally all you do i connect each PC to the router and the router to the Modem. Then set up the router & IP addresses on each PC. The router handles the communication with the modem.
However in your case it appears the ISP has their own custom Modem setup that requires their software on your PC. This means you will have problems getting a router to work with that modem.

I can't see why they suggest a Hub over a Router as Hubs can only connect PCs they don't connect to Modems.

Check this networking FAQ ***********.smallnetbuilder.com/FAQ-27-General+Networking-0.php#191 as it covers the setup in more depth
