Can I upgrade my gateway without renting it?
I have purchased a new computer and printer that won't connect to my ten-year old gateway equipment (3800 HGV-B). I do not want to "rent" new equipment but would like to purchase my own. AT&T customer support said I could do that and that there was an approved list of equipment on their website, which I am having difficulty finding. Is there such a list, and where is it? Or is it possible to purchase from AT&T rather than rent it?

ATT doesn't allow purchasing anymore and only waives the lease fee if you have the any of the following model numbers:
NVG510 ( for IPDSL customers)
But these are not the latest gateways and they don't support speed higher than 12 MBps, I believe.
So at this time, you have no choice but to rent to get the latest ones.
