Re: How to Restart and Factory Reset your Gateway

I have new ATT service installed with a new modum. Computers & TV hardwired. Service was fine 1st 2 weeks. Then internet connection on computer & TVs became intermittent. ATT ran test on service coming into home & found no problem. TT replaced modum but still have the problem. Serviceman said it's in the home but doesn't know what to do. I need my internet connection for work. This is a HUGE problem and very discouraging that the service person can't fix or tell me what to do.
