I have a Pace 3801HGV residential gateway. The only AT&T service I have is Internet, which is via fiber to the home (aka FTTP - fiber to the premises). As such, the only input going into my 3801HGV is a standard Cat5 ethernet cable. Shouldn't I be able to swap my 3801HGV for my own router? I tried the following two routers with varied success:
I copied my 3801HGV's settings (the Broadband connection settings which simply consist of a static IP, subnet, gateway, DNS, and MTU) and tried them in a DLink DIR-855L router. It worked except that certain websites seemed to not load or load very slowly - not sure why.
I also tried a Cisco E2000 router with the same Broadband settings but could not get an Internet connection at all.
Is there some proprietary signalling or something going on with the AT&T RG's for the Internet connection that other routers will not be able to duplicate?

I would also like to avoid the monthly equipment lease fee. I have an old 2Wire 270HG that I used to use with my FTTP service. Would this still work even though it is no longer supported by AT&T?

So I bought a 3801HGV router the same exact one that AT&T is trying to force me to buy. Why can't I use the one I bought? It doesn't want to hookup for some reason. Everything works but I can't get the internet / service to work and they want to charge me for tech support!!
