ComputerJoe and SomeJoe-
Follow up with the answer. I haven't had time to devote to this due to work related projects. In gathering the data you requested, I was reviewing the settings on my NAS. What I found buried in the server settings was the problem and thus the solution. It turns out the devices that were the problem that were those that had static ip addresses. In reviewing their network settings, all of them had the dns and gateway assigned to Comcast.net, not gateway.2wire.net. Once I changed that in the settings on my nas and ip camera - everything returned to the way it was before I switched to Uverse. Nice! I was able to find the correct settings from my iMac, which gets its ip via dhcp from my router. I feel like an i,d,i,o,t. So...the instructions to get it in to bridge mode worked perfectly for me. The only thing to add, would be to remind people who follow your instructions to make sure all the network settings for all networked devices change accordingly.
Thanks again for your patience and sage advice.
Here is one additional question. My linksys router for some reason today lost its Internet connection. I was able to do a quick check to verify it had an ip address from the 2Wire. I unplugged and reset the 2wire and all worked well following thisreboot. Any ideas? Should I expect this to happen every month? I believe my external ip has not changed.
