Best way to use existing router with new AT&T Fiber
I was told (sales) I could use my own router but I'd still have to pay the $10 hardware fee and that is not great but I was ok with it as I've spent a lot of time setting my existing router and network devices.
Now it seems this is not the case or its a bit more complicated. Best case you have to have the 010 ONT and the BGW210-700 gateway. That is the setup they gave me but then you need a smart switch and you have to enable the ONT connection with the BGW210-700 gateway and remove it from the network but then if you lose power then you have to set it all up again or something like this?
I just wanted to plug the WAN port on the DIR-882 router and have everything in the house that goes through the DIR-882 continue to work as is. There is no way to do this? AT&T just wants everyone to move all there existing network devices over to the BGW210-700 gateway? :(
