Using Amplifi Alien in Bridge Mode Causing Problems with U-Verse TV
Hello community! I have a problem... I have Uverse TV, Home Phone, and Fiber Internet and for the past two years I have used the Amplifi Alien ( Wifi AX) for my wifi... I have kept the wifi in the AT&T gateway ( BGW210-700) disabled and I use the Amplifi Alien in bridge mode.
This combo has worked fine for the last two years until tonight. I got prompted that there was a firmware update for the Amplifi Alien so I did it then throughout the night my Uverse TV kept pausing and freezing up, etc. I rebooted the gateway, power cycled the DVR and set top boxes, etc to no avail....I checked all the connections to make sure everything was tight, etc........nothing fixed the problem until I unplugged the Amplifi Alien from the back of the AT&T gateway.....my Uverse TV is now working fine.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to what could of happened here and what I could do to be able to use my Alien again? I have invested in two iPhones and two MacBooks that use the newer wifi AX technology and going back to the BGW210 kinda defeats all of that. I just don't understand how it would all the sudden cause problems with the Uverse TV while being used in bridge mode? my internet and home phone were not affected and they continued to work fine. It was just the TV that messed up. Any input on this would be much appreciated.....thank you
