Wireless signal is not from ATT but from the router or modem.
the distance between is line of sign. approximate max distance is 500 ft. you should have not problem connecting it.
The only obstacle is walls, trees, or any other thing between you and the modem.

Dynex tv won't give me the option to connect to a wireless network. It defaults to wired


This would normally indicate either a compatibility problem, the wireless network is not broadcasting, or you do not have enough signal to see the network. First thing I would try is most devices that can connect to WiFi have the option of connecting to a network that is not listed. I would try that. If that still does not work I would then try disabling all wireless security on the router just to see if that will work(I do not recommend leaving the security disabled any longer than it takes to test this). If none of that works then the next thing would be to check the signal. If you have a laptop, tablet, or cell phone that is connected to your wireless network then bring it over to the tv. If you loose signal, or have low signal then you will need to find a way to get more signal. Even if you do not see low signal on other devices the tv can still have too low signal partly because the antennas are usually in the back where the signal would be blocked by the tv as well as any other equipment you may have around the tv. Try to make sure that there are no metal objects between the tv and the router, and if possible try to get the router as close to directly behind the tv as possible. The more walls the wireless signal has to go through the weaker the signal will be, and metal can reflect the signal, completely blocking it, as well as causing noise on anything near the metal.

Lost connectivity to network printer when switched to ATT u-Verse


Is the printer connected via wireless? When I recently connected up a new wireless printer to my UVerse network, the printer manual said that establishing the first connection works better via an Ethernet cable directly to the Uverse router. After the printer is set up once, then I could remove the ethernet cable and connect to the printer via wireless from all my computers.
For all wireless PCs that were previously connected via wireless to dsl, you need to create a new network connection for each one, then enter the key that is listed on the side of your Uverse router when prompted. Sometimes it takes a few minutes to establish the connection.
I am amazed that ATT was so unhelpful on these issues. I was one of their first Uverse customers in Texas, and several times over the last years, techs would visit my house to solve a problem or hook something up, explaining to me as he went. That their helpful attitude is deteriorating is a real shame.

I have an AT&T Modem; having trouble with internet connectivity


It is OK to keep putting the UN and PW in. However you shouldn't have to. I suggest having a tech come to your home and have them do a signal test both at your jack and outside with your home unplugged from your service box. If there is a big difference in the numbers then you're simply loosing signal due to signal bleed inside. This is a simple fix. Have them isolate some wires in your jack and place a DSL filter outside. Then your DSL signal will go straight to your modem and not bounce all over your home. This will NOT affect your phone.

Need router or modem for ATT DSL 6.0


Hi,
Your laptop has got a modem built in, but it is intended for dial up 56Kbps, not DSL. So they are both right. But if you want to use a DSL internet service you will need to buy either a DSL router or modem. You should not need to buy bothas the router will have the modem built in. Your ISP may have a prefered model and will probably sell you one at a fairly cheap price or you can get one from your local PC world. If you only have the one Laptop at home you can buy either the router or the modem. The modem will probably be cheaper. But for around $60 you can buy a router I prefer wireless. This will allow you around 4 connections and more importantly frees you up from having to be directly and closely connected and allows you to work in various places around the home without trailing cables everywhere. Your ISP will advise you on the settings you require. I advise you to enable all the security options on any wireless devices. I hope this was useful.

2701HGB modem - dsl light flashes red


if all the lights on the modem are Green then it means there's no prob with the hardware. just make sure that you're going to use the right WEP key or wireless password. the network name is 2wirexxx, the X is the the last 3 numbers of the SN which can be found on the bottom of your 2wire 2701HG-B.make sure that your wireless switch is also turned on of course. the wireless light on the modem will lit if it is connected

Help please


you can go to any wi-fi locations near your area and access the internet on your laptop. I think AT&T offers wi-fi access to its members on any of its designated hotspot /wifi locations (nearly 15,000 company-owned & roaming) e.g. McDonald's, Barnes & Noble bookstores, leading airports, coffee shops, etc. you can visit att.com and login to your account to find more details.
or call them at: 1-888-888-7520

you don't need to install any software/ dsl installation on your laptop when you are using a public wi-fi connection, just ensure that your computer firewall is on and take precautions when sending out any personal info online.
