I have just purchased your Gateway M6319 Notebook and have not been able to get on line. I have AT&T DSL on my home computer and have talked with them about this. They checked the modem and it is functioning. they then helped me get to the "network Sharing" and determined that DSL capabilities are NOT on my brand new Laptop, yet, right on the box AND on the laptop itself it says that it has DSL loaded.
Can you please, please help me.

The tech is right, you can only have 1 modem on your residential line. The 2-wire router/modem should have 4 ports in back to share with other computers AND a wireless signal too. You can run an ethernet cable to your bedroom or get an adapter (either USB or PCI card) to connect to your router and share the modem. If you go wireless, the 2-wire router is by default an encrypted signal. The password is on the sticker, usually all numbers. Look at manual for changing configuration.
It sounds like the dsl modem and the gateway should be sync'd in the following way: 1. Turn everything off and disconnect the dsl for a bit. Make sure even the wifi stuff is off. 2. Turn on your gateway and let it cyce up. 3. Plug the dsl ethernet cable into your gateway, and to your phone line, then plug in the power to the dsl. This will cause the dsl modem to "find" the gateway IP address and connect. 4. Turn everything else back on. This should eliminate all the drops... Let me knowhow it goes... K
the UM150 wireless card goes into the computer.
however, the DSL need to be wired to your computer for initial configuration.
if you just hook up the DSL as verizon say, then you will have a open wireless network, anybody can get access to your network.
I'm afraid I got bad news for you. The fax line and voice line are using the same frequency so you should be able to fax directly from your pc fax modem when using Dial up connection but in DSL the data and voice are using different frequency. So you wont be able to fax using DSL unless u\you use a separate fax machine.
Digital subscriber line (DSL) uses digital technology to bring high-bandwidth information over ordinary copper telephone wires. Digital data is transmitted to the computer directly as digital data (instead of analog) and this allows the telephone company to use a much wider bandwidth for transmitting the data to its destination. XDSL is a generic reference to the different variations of DSL, such as ADSL, HDSL, and RADSL.
DSL services rely on an am radio wave that has a range of 600 KHz to 2.2 GHz. HP all-in-one and fax products are all ITU Group 3 fax devices that operate at about 200 KHz (below the DSL capability) and are not directly compatible with digital signals.
However, if specified during the set-up of the DSL line, the signal can be separated so that some of the bandwidth is used to transmit an analog signal (for voice and fax) while the remaining bandwidth is used to transmit digital data. This allows for the use of the telephone or fax, and computer on the same line and at the same time. When inquiring about DSL with the service provider, specify the desire to use the phone line for voice or fax calls while connected through the computer to the Internet.
I hope I explained the issue clearly to you.
You can actually try accessing the interface of your gateway and put it on DMZ mode. That way it will open the ports on your gateway to ensure passage of all data from your gateway to all your computers even when the dsl is on. But make sure tat you have security software installed on all your computer workstations bec. putting your 2WIRE gateway on DMZ mode will expose your connection.
Easy way to diagnos is call ATT DSL support and ask them to run a line noise test. This will check the signal getting to the gateway. If everything tests fine there is usually an issue with the device.
