Installing Wireless N router behind 2wire 3800HGV-B
It has been with great interest that I have reviewed many of the posts relating to the best way to connect a wireless router to the 2wire 3800hgv-b gateway. My question is as simple as I am: inside the HTML interface with the gateway, there is a listing called "Broadband." Under that there is a selection called "Link Configuration." On that page there is an offer to "add an additional network." It appears that one can enter the router address and subnet mask, check the "auto firewall open" box and be done.
Is this a software update to simplify the process added after all of the detailed instructions were written on how to accomplish adding a wireless router, or am I missing something very important?
I would appreciate any assistance because my goal is to connect my ATT Uverse internet connection to my new TV with built in wireless and stream Netflix, Amazon streaming, etc. The built in "g" router is not getting the job done even though I have a 12 MbPS connection. I am trying out the Vizio XWR100 dual band HD "N" router to see if it will provide a more consistent service. Thanks
