use sonicwall 2040 Enahnced OS instead of the att modem altogether and use the PPoE settings in sonicwall. Not sure how

Pretty much sums it up.

I want to be able to connect the DSL line directly to the sonicwall and use the sonicwall PPPoE settings. This is with the ATT DSL package with static block of IP addresses.

Not sure if it is as easy as sticking the RJ10 cable from the drop into the X2 port. It isn't but I wish it was...

Can this be done?

Nope.  The sonic wall has ethernet ports only.  You can not plug your RJ11 phone line into a RJ45 ethernet port and expect anything good to happen.  Yes, I know it physically fits because the RJ11 plug is smaller than an RJ 45 plug.  But beyond that, the Sonicwall has no circuitry to handle DSL signals.  If you are connecting to a DSL line, then you must have a DSL modem device between the Sonicwall and the DSL line.  If you are connecting to a Cable line, then you must have a Cable model between the Cable and the Sonicwall.  The Sonicwall PPPoE settings are used to instruct the DSL (or Cable) modem how to sign into the ISP's system.
