Can a 2wire 1000HG be used as a bridge?

You would need to look in the settings to see if it has bridge mode. A possible option for you. Get two wireless routers. Have one in the house where it is now. Run an ethernet cable from it into the shop (Max lenth should not exceed 300ft) Put the other router in the shop. Hook the ethernet from an Ethernet port on the router in the house to the WAN/Uplink port on the second router. Make sure both routers have DHCP enabled and they are on different subnets. So house network could be (Ex: network and Shop ( network. These will route correctly and use the same internet connection. If you need further directions just ask.

Is this a cable service?
It is possible you have a bad connection. Either inside the house or outside.
Cable.. You will have a cable modem connected to the cable.
One main thing to do is to re-trim all the ends of the cable at every connection point between the modem and the outside connection. Replace any old connectors or splitters with new ones of correct value. The idea being to remove any oxidation which will impair the signal. If none of this helps, you may need the outside wiring looked at. Your connection service should do this at no charge.
If you have not done so, power off the modem completely, including removing the battery back up.
Wait about 20 seconds. Reinstall battery and power connection. About 20 -30 seconds to reconnect.
"few hours everyday" might indicate a problem outside, (wiring or junction box) possibly warming up in sun and cooling later?
On the PC. Use the connection wizard to "connect to a network". Connect to your own network on every pc you use.

My internet connects slows (211kbps) and drops off completely. AT&T says it's inside the home. Anyway to check the modem? I have unplugged and restarted it several times

More likely your telephone junction box outside your house has a bad wire connection - I've experienced the same problem before for my DSL. In addition, sometimes my phone line would go out as well - no dial tone. Listen to your phone and check if you have a dial tone when the Internet connection drops out - they may be associated.

I moved my router no Internet now

Before spending your money on a new router & possibly having the same issue again, you might want to call your ISP & ask them to reset the mac/ip binding. Then, make sure your router is the first device to connect. Some ISPs create this binding which doesn't expire for several hours during which time a new device will not be allowed to bind. Just call the ISP to be sure. Otherwise, your new router will yield the same result.
Good luck.

Connected to the router but router cannot connect

Assuming no other changes to your environment first try restarting everything - from the outside in. Start by restarting the cable/dsl modem, then the router, then the computer - allowing each to completely reset before going to the next.

You might also want to contact the provider to check availability in your area - in case there are known outages in your area.

Internet connection dies when phone rings

There are a number of tests you can perform to find the problem unhook all the phones in your house and then call to see if it still does it. If it doesnt it may be one of your phones. If it does check the wiring in the jacks and make sure the wires are not backwards in any of them. If they all appear to be fine there maybe a problem at the pole or box whichever the company has installed in your neighborhood. Once you have determined that none of the above is present its not your fault and the providing internet company should not charge you to come out and check the outside lines. It can be as simple as a little short in the wire especially if its underground.

You may also wanna locate the phone box on the outside of your home and see if it disconnects when connected to there.

The box Outside Should Look Like This

And You'll Need To Disconnect All Of The Lines From These Plugs And Then Plug Your Internet Directly Into One Of Them. This Will Disconnect All The Phone Lines In The House. Now Place A Call To Your Home Via Cell Phone Or Have A Friend Call And If It Doesn't Disconnect Your Internet The Problem Is In The House.
If It Still Does Its The Phone Company's Problem And You'll Need To Call Them To Fix The Problem.


If This Does Not %100 Solve Your Problem Let me Know And I Will Continue Further Trouble Shooting With You.
