Hello All,

It's not going to work. The AT&T gateways are designed to take the main feed from the street. So the 599 has no way to input data to it, as the 5268 already is using it.


You could run a cat5 cable from the 5268 to a desired location and set up a 3rd party router there. 

Or if not wanting to have cables look into WiFi mesh systems. One device (the main hub) plugs into the 5268 and the nodes can go elsewhere in the house and only need power.
