Default AT&T UVerse Internet

Just got it this morning and I must say it's pretty snappy. Pages load in a flash and YouTube vids don't have to stop to load in mid play. 18 down, 2 up.

OK so I don't particularly like AT&T but besides the crappy cable service, they're the only alternative that was cost effective. $44.00 per month for the first year then 56.00 per month for the rest of the time I stay hooked up.

Oh they did have thier share of getting a connection to my apartment but they did get it done. The install costed 99.00 one time fee. The modem/router combo was going to cost me 100.00 but the cost was waived due to me having to wait 2 weeks to get them out here to hook me up.

Right now I can't get in to the router to alter any of the programming. That's ok. I'm not your average end user either...

Default Re: AT&T UVerse Internet

We were about get uverse Internet, but cancelled as soon as I found out that their modem/router was combined and that I wouldn't be able to use it in combination with the wired network we have in our house. Afaik they use pppoe instead of dhcp, which would have meant a few hours/days of work for me trying to get the other switches/routers in my house to play nice.

Good luck, maybe you will have the patience I didn't have.

I did get in to the router and scoped out the setup. U-Verse is different from dsl. It uses direct IP DHCP or static. It's network based. It's not DSL. If it was DSL I would not have got it.
Right now I have 1 desktop and 2 laptops plugged directly in and not a single bit of lag on any of them.

Just did a quick check on speed. I'm on the 18 down 2 up tier.



Pretty close...
