Re boot everything from cold. I mean close windows down, shut down. The reboot of boxes is by order,
1 data switches (if you have them).
2 router + modems (could be an "all in one" box).
3 Computers.
In this order the chips chatter before windows boots. This is specialy important after changing computer boxes.
On the cables in your systems a shout of "who is there" and replies of "I'm here" happens between the boxes on your network. Wi-Fi gets to know as well. A lot of network "fixes" happen when you do this, this way. There is a load of "techno babble" as to what is happening in those seconds while everything settles down.

Launch a web browser from a computer or wireless device that is connected to your router's network. Type http://routerlogin.net into your web browser's address bar. The user name is adminand the default password is password.

Check or set your WiFi password/passphrase. Here then on any wireless device you want to connect.
if you have 2.4 AND 5.8 ghz you have to set the SSID & passphrase on both.

Log into the Router's ADMIN screen. Enter the router's IP address in your browser -- probably something like GOOGLE the Router Model and "Manual", to learn the default User Name and password for the login. Probably hasn't been changed. Look for the Wi-Fi setup screen and change the SSID -- that's the network name broadcast by the router.

The 7550 Modem Router was sold directly to AT&T ISP and came with no support. These units were somehow now available in retail channels. These units should come in a brown box. NETGEAR does not provide any technical support support for this model.
Please refer back to the reseller for any warranty and support options available to you.

NETGEAR Support Answer No NETGEAR support for the AT 7550 Modem Router

You need to go to AT&T for support and how to bridge this modem.

I have had this exact same scenario with my provider of service, the promised speeds are a joke and vary with the time of the day and the amount of usage, it is a big scam and the Feds should crack down on these companies. As far as solutions go, none that can help exist until the government gets on them and fines the kajebah's out of the companies doing this.
