Please help me avoid calling AT&T tech support. Question about setting up modem for new Internet-only service from AT&T.
I previously had DSL through AT&T, bundled with phone service. Canceled both over a year ago, but am now letting Demon Internet back into the house. Signed up for U-verse Internet only (i.e., no phone or TV through AT&T). Service is activated tonight.
AT&T sent me their $75 modem (which they charged me $75 for). Turns out that the $75 modem doesn't do wireless -- it's ethernet only. We have two laptops in the house. Don't want no ethernet.
I have the old AT&T DSL modem, which had a built-in wireless router. (Is 'router' the right word? Maybe it was a wireless 'modem'? I do not speak Geek.) Can I use it with the new service?
Searching through previous AskMe questions led me to this
support document about how to set up a 3rd party modem, so I'm assuming that using an older 2wire modem from AT&T should work as well. I know I can call them and ask, but I'm only expecting them to try to sell me the $125 "U-verse Gateway" which networks computers and controls your TV and all that crap I don't need.
