Otherwise it's more of a hub/switch not a router

Just make sure you got a firewall, a switch doesn't have any fitering at all.

you connect the modem to the router's Internet Network Connection and the router connects to the internet using PPPoE, the modem is used as a Bridge, The Computers plug to the Routers LAN Network Plugs.
Still i just think its better to use a Modem/Router so its all built into a single Package also with Built in Modem/Routers when you have ADSL you can use PPPoA where necessary, some isp's use Either PPPoE or PPPoA Encapsulation and if you don't use the same encapsulation as your ISP you loose like 15k/sec of Bandwidth or more on your Upload / Download.
