If you think of it as a 3 dimensional jig saw puzzle it becomes a fun challenge and actually not too difficult.
Try this if you're into an adventure:
- sort out all of the pieces (poles etc) by size, shape, length.
- spread put the tent.
- secure the corners to the ground with spikes through the loops.
- look at the parts you have and decide how it needs to be supported.

You can replace tent poles. I've never used them, but you can try http://tentpoletechnologies.com/. Otherwise I would suggest buying replacement poles from Academy (who makes the Magellan Outdoor line) or trying to find generic poles and an sporting goods store. Best of Luck!
Clean the ground of any rocks,
logs or big sticks. Open the stuff sack and pull out all of the
contents. Pull the poles out of their pole bag and set them aside.
Remove the tent stakes and set them next to the tent.
Lay out the tent poles and
assemble them. Push the rod blanks together to make the tent poles that
will support the mesh tent body.
Unroll the mesh tent over the
cleared ground. Take care not to step on or walk on the mesh panels.
Avoid sticks and snags, as the mesh rips easier than nylon tent fabric.
Clip the Timbertop tent pole
clips to the poles. There are no tent pole sleeves because Timbertop
uses external pole clips for its mesh tents. Criss-cross the tent poles
and push the tent pole tips into the metal holes at the end of the pole
clip lines. The mesh tent will now be standing upright.
Place one tent stake into the
ground and through a pole strap stake hole. Pull the tent out as you
insert the stake to keep the mesh panels tight. Stake down each pole
strap around the perimeter of the tent. Unzip the doors to enter the
tent. Zip up the doors quickly after entry to keep bugs and insects out
of the tent.
I have the same model number tent and have some broken connectors as well. I could not find any replacement parts any where local or online. I called Coleman's customer service number at 800-835-3278. The tent has been discontined but they had a few of the connectors "in the office" and shipped me three. Give them a call; they were extremely helpful. Coleman customer service is top notch in my book!
General tent setup instructions:
thread assembled poles through sleeves
connect one end of poles into tent corners
1 by 1 connect the other end of the pole, work front to back and the tent should assemble quite easy.
The directions are on the actual tent bag. The trick to setting this tent up is to stake it down first. Then set up the center poles - you will need at least two people to do this. Once it is staked it will go up pretty fast.
