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.

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 ?

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

Setting a System Password
Setting a system password protects your gateway settings from being modified or changed by someone who has not been given permission to do so. After setting a system password, you will be required to enter it whenever you attempt to access a gateway configuration page - for example, if you try to change the gateway's broadband connection settings or upgrade the gateway software. If a password has not been set,
a reminder notice is displayed when you attempt to access pages where settings can be changed.
To set your system password:
• Open a Web browser and access the gateway user interface by entering
• Click the System tab.
• Click the System Password link in the System area of the Network at a Glance panel to open the Edit
System Password page.
1. In the Settings panel, click the Enable checkbox.
2. In the Enter New Password field, enter your password.
3. In the Confirm New Password field, re-enter your password.
4. Optional: In the Enter Your Hint field, enter a hint.
A hint is a word, phrase, or question that reminds you what the password is. There is an I forgot the password link on the password entry page. When you click this link, it shows you your hint and allows you to enter your password.
5. Click SAVE.

Uninstall it.
Ok so sometimes this IPv4 to IPv6 shim can become a problem and in some cases it does not appear in the list of adapters where you can quickly disable it. Fortunately there is a way to quickly disable the Teredo Tunneling interface using the command line. Open an elevated command window and type the following command:
netsh interface teredo set state disabled
You can read more about 6to4 adapter commands here

If the wireless device is working properly the LED's blink when transfering and receiving data. Even when not in use the ISP modem and the wireless device will blink. I would start by Checking ALL cables in the network, verify the cable connections. Have your ISP verify the signal, if necessary have a ISP tech come out to analyze the signal.

Sounds like a startup self test. All wireless devices go through a power on self test. Does it connect? You can connect to it and go online? I rarely turn mine off, only in a electrical storm.
