Uverse standard routers are the .11g specification. This was developed in 1995. The .11n was developed in 2003 and revamped in 2007. Why does ATT only provide the outdated spec. and charge you a monthly rental fee for it!

If you want "N" you could always get one of these or any other of your choosing. The 2 wire RG is what it is. AT&T is using "N" for communication to the wireless STB's though but it is a seperate wireless router just for that.

Yeah, they told me less than a week ago that there are absolutely no residiential gateways for Uverse with wireless N avaialble ; However they are available for DSL only customers.
Last time I connected a seprate wireless router to the gateway, the gateway decided to screw with the traffic.
It would be great if 2wire (Pace) was kicked out for something from Cisco -- after all AT&T already uses them for the boxes. Would love to see a Cisco Linksys Residential Gateway for AT&T.

As for Wireless-N, and gig LAN ports, there is no need for them until the inbound connection exceeds the current standards that is being used for ADSL2+/VDSL.
Most people assume that if they had wireless N it would increase their download speed for the internet which is completely false. The only difference wireless N would be is in transferring files from one computer in a network to another. For 99% of the wireless users out there, wireless G is plenty fast enough.

I guess then we should also still use the Ford model T car. Basically you're saying don't use something ten times better, and use something old and lame.

@russillo255 you do realize you are responding to a post (4) years old.
At the time these posts were made the best interest speed available from Uverse was Max Turbo 24M. As wireless G supports up to 54M, yes the gateways at the time were more than sufficient for the bandwidth being provided.
For your car example, having a vehicle that can do 210mph, when the infrastructure will not support it is a waste of resources. If a Model T can do today's speed, then yes it is a usable car.
Since then the company has released...
the 5031 2.4 Ghz b/g/n wireless for non IPTV single pair accounts
the 589 2.4Ghz b/g/n wireless with (4) gigaports LAN, single or bonded accounts
The 599 b/g/n/ac dual band with (4) gigaports Lan, for single, bonded and gigapower accounts
The 5268, same as 599 specs.
