How to hook up my Linksys E3000 router with the New Uverse Internet Gateway
I hope this is the right forum for this. I just upgraded from ATT DSL service to ATT Uverse Internet. Att provides a new proprietary gateway modem
for this service that you must use.
The issue is I have a Linksys E3000 wireless router I want to use after the ATT modem and I don't know exactly how to set it up to play nicely with the new gateway modem. The new Gateway has wireless so apparently I need to turn off the wireless in the ATT modem in order to use my E3000 router.
Can anyone shed any light on how I hook up my E300O with this new modem?
View related: Help networking with Uverse gateway2011-12-09 17:06:13I'm trying to establish a simple wired network with 2 computers, one running XP and one running Win7 and a printer via this Uverse gateway and not making much progress. Both computers are plugged into the gateway and get internet fine. Both have the same workgroup name. What else is necessary for them to see each other? For the printer, it's been plugged into the Win7 computer...does it stay there or does it get plugged into the gateway somewhere.....where? And is the gateway all I need or is a hub necessary? Thanks....
Going bonkers with r6300 and Uverse2012-06-04 09:15:21I had been using a lot of switches and the 2wire residential gateway that the Uverse came with to run my local area network which includes a home media server, along with a trendnet router as a wireless access point. I wanted to upgrade to 5ghz so I bought a fancy netgear R6300 but it insists on functioning as an independent router, requiring there to be a cable in the internet port as opposed to just the LAN ports like I used on the trendnet. It won't accept being part of the other network beyond internet access, it keeps switching its IP address to 10.0.0.1 and I've had no luck getting it to act as part of the existing 192.168etc... is there anything I can do? Can I get this thing to play nice with the Uverse somehow? What steps will I need to take? The way that the cabling is distributed in my house, I can't easily separate the different computers and media receivers from the uverse receivers to make things easier.
I've been fiddling with it for hours and I'm lost! Any suggestions or help would be appreciated....

Will port-forwarding increase my download speeds to ps3?2012-04-11 17:10:23I'm trying to stream HD content to my ps3 from my server using Plex but I'm only getting about 10-12MBps on a wired/wireless connection. Two questions:
1. Will port-forwarding increase these speeds? I've setup static IPs for both my server and the ps3 and I have NAT2.
2. On my server, where the media files are located, I'm just using the on-board LAN controller (realtek I believe). Would getting an intel NIC help with the speeds?
Here's my setup:
Cable modem -> Lynksys E3000
Server (where Plex is installed) -wired-> Linksys E3000
PS3 -wireless (atm)->Linksys E3000
Main rig -wired->Linksys E3000
Specs are in my sig....
help with convention center internet hookup2013-06-11 22:10:26Hey guys i have a question, i am doing a event in a convention center. My issue is i had to pay alot of money to get a 3mb internet connection. I thought i could then hook my router up to the line and feed 2 other computers. But when i hook it up i can never get it to work, so i called them and to see whats going on, and they want another 2k dollars for me to hook up my router on bandwidth i have already bought or they will sell me IP address for like $400 each, but not give me any more bandwidth. This is robbery IMO. I can hook up any of the 3 computers and get online, with the static ip, gateway, and dns info. but if i put all that info into the router and try it, it doesnt work. i have also tried cloning my mac address from the computer and coping it to the router and still no luck. Any ideas, i can pay them even more money for bandwidth i have already bought, Anyone have any ideas? thanks...
Uverse 2-Wire Gateway wont connect visiting wireless connections2012-03-09 08:45:22Got a problem I can't figure out. Not new to networking but this has me stumped. I have Uverse and use the 3800 gateway. I have about 2 dozen things hanging off various switches and such -all with assigned addresses. I had some issues a few months ago and changed the the base address to the 10 range from 192. Everything connects fine but when I have people over none of their wireless items will connect. My android phone and laptops all connect fine so it's not a wireless issue.
I normally have my SSID hidden and the network locked down, but last time people were over I broadcast my SSID and unencrypted the connection and the various items still would not connect. I have plenty of IP addresses available also. Is it a possible issue with the subnet mask? Had a few people over one had a new laptop and it would not connect, had to hardwire it, and the other had an Asus Transformer Prime -- both saw the connection and showed great signal strength, but neither would connect to the internet wirelessly.
Gigabit Networking Question.2012-01-27 17:05:23As they say, 'your network is only as fast as the lowest denominator'. Does this also apply to the following?
At home I have a DSL connection provided by a Westell 7500 modem/router/wlan combo device. To this I have attached a Linksys E3000 that is used for 802.11N traffic and Cat5e/Cat6a connections only. The Westell Router/Modem is the DHCP server and also handles 802.11G WiFi traffic. The Linksys E3000 is set up as an access point and the DHCP server is Disabled.
Now, since the Westell 7500 max Ethernet connection speed is 100 Mbps will that limit my LAN/WLAN transfers that are occurring on the Linksys E3000 since the Westell is the DHCP server?...
NIC for use with a UVerse Wireless Router2013-07-27 02:55:23I'm looking for a suggestion for a wireless NIC to use on a desktop PC with the standard ATT UVerse wireless router.
My other option is a 40' patch cord run down the hall.
I see a lot of them on NewEgg but I was wondering if one would work better with the UVerse than the others.
Linksys WPS issues censorship2012-03-04 18:00:24I just have to share something for all you prospective Linksys wireless router buyers out there I went to the Linksys Community forums and posted a question asking when they will come up with a fix for the WPS vulnerability on my new E3000 router. I was subsequently banned from the website. Apparently Linksys doesn't want people to know about this issue. Great product support Linksys!!!!!...
Wired Ethernet Bridge - Linksys E3000 with Tomato2012-05-27 21:35:21I'm trying to run CAT6 between two Linksys E3000 running Toastman Tomato so that I can extend the range of both WiFi and wired network without compromising speed & performance. Right now, typically when I get to that side of the house my phone can only get 1 bar on WiFi strength, hopefully with this solution it will roam to the other router
Can anyone confirm if the setup is as follows:
- Setup different static IPs for each router.
- Primary router has connected to modem on internet port, DHCP enabled, port forwarding; secondary router with DHCP disabled
- Duplicated the Wireless settings 100% between the two routers...
Use old router as switch?2013-06-18 19:25:59I replaced my old Cisco/Linksys E3000 with the new Airport Extreme Time Capsule.
Is it possible to just use the old Linksys as a switch? I want to keep it in my entertainment center and use it to share internet to all my devices (ATV, Xbox, TV, etc).
How would I go about doing this? I searched but I couldn't find any specifics that I understood....
Anyone glad they 'upgraded' to Uverse?2013-07-22 23:25:35I called AT&T to complain about how they are metering my internet usage and was immediately switched over to sales where I was promised that if I upgraded from DSL to the glorious fiber that Uverse uses, I'd get a larger data cap (250GB), faster speeds, pay less, and all kinds of other joy. Majority of reviews I've read say avoid at all cost. Your experience?
Mods: wasn't sure where to post this, so by all means, move if necessary....
Router behind a router?2011-11-16 18:35:41We just switched back to Uverse, (for now) and their 'gateway' doesn't have enough ethernet ports for my needs. (it has 4, I need at least 5, maybe 6.)
I have an old SMC7004VWBR DSL router that I used for many years. I've tried connecting this router directly to one of the ethernet ports on the AT&T router...but it doesn't work
I used a different computer to log into the router and disabled DHCP which is SUPPOSED to allow this to work...but no.
What I have now is something like this:
1) My PC
2) Wife's PC
3) Networked printer
4) DirecTV 'device'
What I WANTED to do is like this:
1) My PC
2) Wife's PC
3) connect to SMC router
3a) Networked printer
4) DirecTV 'device'
(could trade either spare or printer connection for the DirecTV 'device')
Any suggestions on how to make this work?...
AT&T Uverse Wireles and Dropped Connections2013-01-19 05:57:08I recently switched from Time Warner to AT&T Uverse for TV and ISP. I have experienced very annoying wireless internet 'drops' since the switch. For example:
Come home from work, start browsing internet on iPad. After about 2 minutes, while still connected to the wireless network, I am no longer able to navigate the internet and i get timed-out errors. After about 5 more minutes, everything is back to working fine.
This happens consistenly with multiple devices, but only is they have a wireless connection. I.e. the connection is functioning fine one first use, then drops out for a few minutes, and then is fine again. But the device is never dropping off of the networking or losing IP/DNS information...
Optimal Home LAN Setup2012-03-27 01:55:22Looking for advice on setting up LAN from cable modem in.
Have the following hardware: WRT54GL (1.1), 8 port Green switch (unmanaged), E3000
Setup: WRT54 connects to cable modem and acts as router in basement closet.
Switch connects to WRT54 (cat6)
E3000 connects (cat5e) to WRT54 and acts as WAP on main floor.
Is this right or is the WRT54 not fast enough to manage network traffic?
Which device would be used to configure the wifi users, in particular, the guest user? Linksys E3000 guest account crashes all the time?
Is there a speed benefit to installing dd-wrt or tomato on either device?
Advice for max stability and speed?...
Cascading from a modem/router Combo2012-06-28 01:40:23I have a wireless modem/router combo right now provided to me by Centrylink, its the Q1000. I am trying to hook up a 2nd router to our network to extend range and allow extra ethernet connections points. The new (2nd) Router is a Linksys E1200. I have been told by multiple sources it should be possible to hook the Linksy's router to the modem/router, but I am still not sure how to. All of the directions I have read involve disconnecting the old router (in my case, the Q1000) and then connecting the new router (E1200) in order to configure it. But I am not sure how to do this with out the internet access provided by the old router. Can someone clarify how to cascade like this while using a modem/router...
Is it difficult to hook Apple up to a Linksys N router?2012-08-01 16:25:22My sister just called to say she was at best Buy looking for a router. I just told her to grab the Linksys E1200 N router. Then after I hung up, I realized she has Mac and PC in her house. Is this going to be a pai to set up?...
Networking Help, getting my cell phone and wireless router working together.2011-12-24 10:55:42I live out in the boonies and only access the net through my cell phone (Moto Droid). I normally hook the Cell phone up to my computer via USB and it works fine, but I want to be able to hook it up to my Wireless router (d-link dir 655) so that I can have all of my devices (pc, laptop, printer, kindle fire) on the network together and working. Whats the best way to hook everything up? I like the idea of being able to hook the phone up to the computer via usb and that spreading the internet, because if I set the phone up as a wireless hotspot to a laptop, then it is on a different network than my printer and I cant print. Ideas ?...
Use for my old Wrt54g Router2012-01-18 21:40:22I'm thinking about picking up a Linksys E3000 dual band router so I can stream mkv's wireless to my ps3. My current wired setup using the powerline adapters and a switch aren't producing the speeds I had hope for so i fig. I might as well upgrade my 8 yr old router now and see how that goes.
My question is, rather than tossing the old router out, could I use this old router as some type of bridge or extender, and plug the ps3 directly to it and get good enough speeds to stream the mkvs? Would the old router need to be physically plugged into my cable modem for internet or could it act as an extender wirelessly? Would it be better to use the newer E3000 as the bridge/extender and plug the ps3 to that instead? If wireless speeds are good enough for my ps3, could I use this old router as an extender/bridge for my wireless pc and make it wired to the old router?...
Linksys E3000 router can't see Samsung DVR2011-11-14 09:36:03My father and I are trying to get his security system at work connected to the internet so he can watch it at home. Problem is, when we plug the network cable into the dvr, the dvr doesn't show up in the router's client table. We know the network cable works because we can plug it into a computer and it'll show up in the table.
The router is a Linksys E3000. We haven't made any changes to it besides setting up a password. There are two computer connected to it and they work fine.
In the stock network settings in the dvr, it's setup like this.
Connection Mode - Static IP (built in)
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.000
I can change the connection mode to static IP, dynamic IP, or ADSL(PPPoE).
Under Transfer Protocal Settings we have
Protocal Type - TCP (change chance to UDP is necessary)
Unicast/Multicast - Unicast
TTL - 005
DDNS Site - OFF
The router internal ip is currently 192.168.1.1 The other computers are 192.168.1.126 & 192.168.143. We played around with some settings and noticed that the router was only assigning ip address up to .150 so we changed that which didn't work and also changed the ip address for the dvr which also didn't work.
Do we need to try changing the dns address? Should it be the same as the ip address?
Any ideas as to why the router can't see the DVR? We're stumped.
I also know I need to set up port forwarding but we're that that far yet....
