Yes. You need to configure the router. Most of the new routers come with a cd that will guide you. You can also call ATT and they will guide you as well.

Hope that helps you.

How do I use my laptop as an internet source for my wireless router?

You Internet access is through the cable or DSL modem.
Connect your wireless router to the cable or DSL modem and then configure the wireless router with the wireless encryption settings. Then configure the wireless cards in the laptops with the router's encryption settings etc. This will then allow the laptops to connect wirelesslt to the wireless router and the Internet.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Can I use AT&T 2701HG-B 2W Wireless Gateway DSL

yes, you can use them together. they'll find each other at protocol layer 2 (bridge) and layer 3 (router),
and route packets appropriately. Check their manuals to make sure that their HTTP management page ip addresses are different - say 192.168.0.0 for one router and 192.168.1.1 for the other - so that you
can manage them separately without disconnecting them.
You'll want to manage them separately to assign them different wireless-N channels. Channel 6 is
the default, and allowing both to compete on the same channel is a bad idea - give each its own
wi-fi channel. There are 11 wireles 802.11n channels, labeled 1-11.

Diagram: DSL === AT&T 2701HG-B ---------- NetGear router --------------- desktop computer

Each link in the diagram above is an ethernet (802.3 10baseT) cable (except the DSL cable,
which is twisted pairs), and wireless devices can
hop onto the Internet by wirelessly connecting to either the AT&T 2701 or the NetGear router.

I just ordered a Gateway LT3119u and I dont know if I need a router or not. I have a e machine desktop and a DSL modem . Thanks

Hi - Having your desktop machine connected directly to the DSL modem as you do now (Assuming you're using Windows) you could use the desktop as a "router" and your connection to the Internet by using Windows Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to connect the new machine.

If you wanted to use the Gateway laptop with WiFi then you would need a wireless router.

Regardless , I would suggest you get a router (can be had for $30 or so) just to keep things a bit more secure and easy to troubleshoot should the need arise.

Happy Networking and thanks for using Fix Ya.

I need to reconfigure my ativa wireless router as i just had to replace my cable modem from my internet provider at&t. i can't find my original paperwork as i recently moved my business. everything...

If you recently replaced your cable modem, it is most likely that your cable modem is setup as your router. You will need to access the cable modem directly and have it set to bridge mode where it only passes the straight signal to your router.
Most people do not use an external router so cable modems are automatically set to be the router as well, thus making them a Gateway modem. The commands to do this sometimes are not available on the regular login and you might have to have a tech login under their special credentials which give higher access levels. Your router should simply start to work fine once this is done because the cable modem will disable all routing and firewalls and leave them up to your personal router.
If you plug in a laptop directly to the cable modem and can access the internet, google whatsmyip and find out if your IP starts with a 10 or a 192. If it does, you have verified that your cable modem is doing the routing and needs to be changed to bridged mode.

Can't access modem from desktop

If your DSL works on PPPOE then you need to setup PPPOE on the 2wire router with the Complete Username and the PAssword for the PPPOW connection, if your DSL works on a Local IP address like 192.168.1.254 or 192.168.1.1 then first check the gateway address of the 2wire Router, if it's in the same IP address range like the DSL Modem like 192.168.1.x the you need to change the Local IP address of the router from 192.168.1.x to 192.168.2.x that should get you up and running with the DSL Modem.

Wireless Home network will not stay connected to internet

So you have a DSL modem connected to a router connected to a wireless router connected to both your computers? Sounds like you need to just get a wireless modem and throw all the routers away.

Linksys router

unplug your DSL modem. Wait 30 seconds and plug it back in.

Make sure the router is connected to a DSL modem. Lately I have seen DSL modems connected to offices that are really routers. If thats the case it may not be talking because the DSL is address the gateway with the same address as the router.

The best way to test this is to see what happens when you disconnect your linksys router and type in http://192.168.0.1
in internet explorer.

If the DSL modem screen appears, it's configured as a router.

Then you will have to take the linksys router and turn it into a switch with a wireless access point. I
