My 2Wire 3800 gateway I just received from ATT is not working with my Toshiba IPT2010-SD and the ATT technician just says it's incompatible which I find hard to believe. It worked fine with my prior service provider's modem.

PolterGeist - IP phones can be tricky getting everything set up right. You could check with Toshiba to see if they have any suggestions.

Thanks...I've pulled my hair out and now regretting changing internet service providers and may just cancel Uverse and revert back to old provider over this since I was assure my VoIP phone wouldn't be an issue from ther very beginnging. My IT is seeing if our Toshiba phone system vendor has any ideas...rediculous experience so far due to time I've waisted with this VoIP connectivity issue.

Well I wish is was an issue with my IT department, but after spending hours on the phone with multiple ATT techs and the TechConnect service no one has ownership of the solution. The best I can tell is ATT requirements for the 2Wire 3800HGV-B they deploy purposfully prevents usage of non ATT voip phones. The solution someone provided with the 2Wire 3600 doesn't work for the 3800 as it does not even recognize a device present for the port the voip phone is plugged into. But this is one riddle I'm done spending any more time on and going back to comcast service/modem where my voip phone was a non issue and just plug and play.

Now phone equipment swapped out...just ordered Uverse TV and internet for my home office to replace comcast. I have a voip phone my company sent me to use for home office and works fine when plugged into comcast modem, but not with 2Wire.

Here is a link to where someone helped a user connect a VoIP Toshiba phone to their office phone system thru a 2 Wire. It's a differnt type Toshiba phone but the ports needed should be the same for all Toshiba phones.

I got it working finally after discovering the MAC# labels on the voip phone is completely different than the MAC# that the 2Wire identifies when connected by Ethernet port. Originally assumed it was a MAC # for ATT provided device since didn't match anything of my company or personal devices. Once that riddle solved I opened access to through firewall via DMZplus setting.
Thanks for your assistance and patience...lesson learned on trusting labels.

I have a similiar problem. I was forced to go from DSL to U-Verse in Feb 2012. My Toshiba IP-5000-Series phone worked unit about mid-June then it stopped connecting to my IP address. Phone worked with DSL and U-Verse until June.
Two other co-workers had the same issue. AT&T said they did not do anything - sounds suspicious that we all had problems as the same time.
Swapped out the Gateway, swapped out the phone, changed the phone settings - no resolution. The only common Toshiba tech and my IT say it is a phone and U-verse compatibility issue. Can not change phones because using standard company phone.
Everyone using U-Verse and this phone has problems. No one has issues with Verizon FiOS, WOW but they are not in my immediate area. The only choice I have is Time Warner Cable, which is my next stop and I will probably change.
Anyone have success with U-Verse and the toshiba IP5000-Series phone?

aviewer - Thanks, I'm not technical, but as far as I know, I am connecting directly to my company. I can connect to my company via a VPN, but the issue seems to be that the phone is not finding the IP address through the Gateway.
I've had three AT&T techs in my home, my IT folks have checked everything they can on my computer and remotely, we have set the proper MAC settings on the phone, and set the firewall to DMZ+.The AT&T techs, on-site and over the phone, have not been able to fix the problem. I have had two AT&T techs talk with my IT people while trying to fix the problem on site.
It cannot set the IP address and conect to the primary server.
