Order Of Operation to set up Passthrough for mesh system

Forgive me for I am ignorant...but I bought a TP-Link 2 pod(total) mesh system and have the ATT supplied BGW210-700 router/modem with Fiber connection.

I am seeing different site that offer install tutorials but it feels like they think I know more than I know. My first question that seems to get skipped...probably because it is obvious to folks that are reasonably I do the passthrough procedure before or after I connect and set up my new mesh router? I want to Keep my network name so I don't have to change all of my devices again, but will if I need to. 

Other than that I sort of understand most everything, except the one video I keep coming back to the guy says you need to change the IP address of the ATT provided R/ this necessary?

You said -->Our laptops are Mac's so we don't have that connection point.

i.e,   that means, you don't have an ethernet connection on your PC.  You can buy a device (between $10 and $20 on Amazon) that will convert a USB type C port to an ethernet connection,

And if the system ever does factory reset, you will have the code on the back of the modem, and you will have a factory provided ssid that is activated, that you can get back into. (via wifi and using the code on the modem..)
