Supply own router

With AT&T Internet, can I supply my own router instead of using theirs?

Re: Supply own router

Can you place your own behind the gateway for desired functions such as parental control, etc.... Yes.


Can you remove the gateway, no... Required to authorize your service.


Can you purchase a used gateway from.ebay, craigslist or other.... Yes, ATT is not required to activate it, especially if a company owned unit that a previous account holder failed to return.


Nor would a private purchase unit remove the $7 or $10 equipment fee which is agreed to by you in the ATT Internet Terms Of Service (TOS).
