ATT has various 802.11n gateways under test in their labs now to get approved for use, as soon as they get done they will be offered to users.. When?, who knows..

They do have "N" gateways. If you want to drop your TV and VOIP and go back to ADSL. There's the Pace 4111N and the Motorola NVG510.
How can you be in two places at once, when your not anywhere at all?
I really want to become a procrastinator, but I keep putting it off.

Just because AT&T offers a slow internet connection doesn't mean all the computers and devices in my house want to talk TO EACH OTHER on a slow connection as well. Some of us have multiple devices that interact with each other, regardless of the internet. Why cripple my home network because AT&T can't deliever a tolerable speed? It's called "home networking", "internet connecting."

Home networking and internet connecting are completely separate mediums. One refers to WAN one refers to LAN. What type of work are you doing that you need to have a large amount of throughput on a LAN? Certainly nothing that most users have demand for.

Why does one need N? (Which I have via the Apple Airport Extreme). My Mac Pro Desktop acts as my primary machine.. All of my video is stored on it and streamed to the TV and what ever other device some one wants to watch it on. My thousand+ CD/mp3/itunes library is likewise stored here, and all our iTune devices stream music from the shared libraries as well as being used to feed music to my surround sound system and the distributed sound system. I use my iPad to play shared iTunes and then stream it via Airplay to my sound system, giving me a cool roving remote for my music, but hte stream has to come in from the Mac, to the ipad and backout to the Airplay devices. All in all, the N keeps up with hardly a glitch, but the hold G system just couldn' handle all the traffic. I don't even game (no time) and I still load the N network ( Home network is 21 devices without visitors (12 wired, 9 wireless) ). The N is mostly for the video obviously, but also steps up to the demand of multiple devices. It's not so much the N to access the public internet, but rather to satisfy the demands of all the devices in on the local LAN.
I think this situation is likely to become the norm rather than the exception.

The need for speed. 802.11g is limited to 54mbs. I want dual band at least 300+300. The ability to create SSID for visitors would be very nice.
It will not make your Internet connection any faster. I laugh everytime someone brings up the subject of wanting Wireless-N, when their Internet speed does not give the means to even needing anything faster than Wireless-G.

The solution is to disable U-verse wireless settings and install a separate wireless n or ac router. I just did so with the Belkin 900ac router. Set up was effortless. I was soon streaming media on 5ghz & other data on 2.4ghz and communicating between my various computers on my home network. The only reason I did this was to increase range as ATT's 2WIRE 3801HGV doesn't have enough range to meet my needs. Unfortunately, neither did the Belkin as it's range was also poor. I picked up the Belkin at a nationally known warehouse store at only $100. I returned the router and will switch to the ASUS RT-66U 802.11ac at about $200 which has much better range and performance. A single band wireless n router that has great range and performance is the D-Link DIR-645. Originally listed at $129, it can be found as low as $69.
