Compatible Routers

Well as of right now the modem/router i have is a 3600HGV-b and i am going to send that in to get a modem. Also i have about $300 to spend on a router. Does anyone know list of routers i can buy from the store or online that would work with ATT U-Verse ADSL+2 internet. Also whish modem is available?

The modems AT&T will use should be one of the three following modem/gateways:

  1. Pace 2701HGV-B
  2. Motorola NVG510
  3. Motorola 2210

Any consumer grade router/WAP should work behind the modem/gateways listed above, so pick the one you want. Just don't get one with an integrated modem.

Personally, my opinion is which one is the least worse.Smiley Wink so pick your poison.

 

The 2210 has a single LAN port, and no wireless. The least amount of interference with setting up your own router/WAP. Advanced setup.

 

The 2701 has four LAN ports, and only "G" wireless. Not a bad router, but not-so-hot wireless. You could get away with just buying a WAP (wireless access point) or setting up your router/WAP as just an access point (probably the easiest setup).

 

The 510 has four LAN ports, and "N" wireless. Not too bad wireless, but a buggy modem/gateway overall. Avoid if you can.

Re: Compatible Routers

Which router should I get so that I will have UPNP? Trying to monitor security cameras remotely but UPNP is not supported by Uverse? I was told I could plug a secondary router or modem behind the uverse unit but I don't know which one to buy. I don't need wirless since the camera system is in same location of main uverse unit. Thx.
