What exactly is this residential gateway?
I am thinking about switching to U-verse but want to be sure I understand what it means for my internet connection and WiFi. I currently have Charter cable internet and I purchased my cable modem and router at Best Buy so it is mine, not leased from Charter. Is the RG your modem and router or is it just a modem? If it operates as both, does it work just like any other router, basically can I set up WAP or WEP or whatever I want to use for security and connect other devices to it wirelessly such as our iPhones, laptops, Wii, and PS3? Also will it work with my AT&T M-cell?
Also about speeds. I currently have the 18Mbps plan with charter yet my speedtest.net speeds run around 21 - 22 Mbps on my laptop most of the time. If I get the internet plan that says it is 18Mbps what kind of speeds should I expect? Will it actually be capped at 18 or will I be able to get faster speeds like I do now?
I love the idea of the U-verse TV service because it seems so much better than cable but I don't want to screw myself on my internet access, especially on speeds! Thanks for any input.
