Reset your wireless router to factory settings.

On the back or bottom of your router, you will find a small hole perfect for a paperclip to be inserted.

While it is plugged into power, press an unbent end of a paperclip into the hole firmly for 30 seconds then release it.

Your router should now be at the factory settings.

You will need to set up the router very quickly to change the factory Admin password so that nobody else can get into it.

Get your setup instructions online by going to the router's manufacturer page to find the manual for your specific router.

You'll need to contact your ISP and have the DSL service moved to the new line. The laptop sees the mdem or router and thinks it's connected, but the red internet light tells you the connection is not complete to the phone company.

Did AT & T supply it? If so get back on to them and tell them it;s still happening and if they don't sort it out, you will subscribe with another company.

I've never had any restrictions, I have an internal router, and several computers and devices access the internet through my AT&T account both wired and wireless. I don't know anything that would prohibit you using a machine to connect to the internet through one of their routers, and the fact that it can connect locally, if by locally, you mean you can access other devices connected to the router, then as a network analyst, computer guru, the only thing that I can think that 'might' interfere is your IP address on your computer; but, that would restrict the other devices from connecting to the internet too, or the laptop but not both. But, to me it sounds odd that you have such an issue, it has to be the way the network is configured on your laptop. If you know, you can check this through the DOS or Power Shell on your laptop. I presume it's windows, at the prompt, if windows, just type
ipconfig /all <return> = C:\ipconfig<sp>/all<return>
to check your network card IP and mask settings for all devices that could connect to the internet. Perhaps your laptop is IPv4 and the AT&T is set to IPv6 only, something like that.

what is the default gateway for the ip address of whatever computer you are using ?
Not sure if they can change it but looking up the default gateway ip address will give you the router ip address if DHCP is being used and if it has changed somehow ?

att 2 wire is a Adsl Modem (Requires a telephone line jack to get the signals) but charter communication is a cable internet service (not DSL) , Requires a TV cable service for internet .
These two jacks differs and there working differs ..
Means : Att works with the username and password type of authentication but charter requires the MAC address of modem for authentication .
Therefore for a cable internet 2wire 2701hg-b modem cant be used . But yes in case charters has username and password authentication and works with the telephone jack in house then its possible to use the same modem.

Try another outlet. If problem persists then try another power cord if you have one or you might need to replace it.
