Just switched to new NVG589 gateway. Old 2WIRE was bad. When I boot up HP Win 8.1 desktop with wired conection it connects and disconnects for about 15 mins then finally stays connected. Spent hours with ATT and HP support. Each more or less blames the other. No connection problems with the old 2 WIRE. I also have 8 year old Win XP machine and it is working fine with new gateway. Is anyone having a similar problem. Thanks for your attention.
You said your 2wire went bad, sometimes what goes bad on those modem/routers is the power adapter and usually with a new power adapter it solves alot of those issues with those routers.Give it a try if that 2wire worked better before.
