AT&T remote access to routers?
Edited by schnappi on Nov 17, 2013 at 10:15:22 AM

Hi,

 

2Wire router firmaware was recently upgraded (GUI is different) and there has never been an option for me to do so. Also AT&T has reset our router while on the phone with my before. This makes me wonder...

 

Does AT&T have remote access to UVerse/DSL routers?

Yes, all AT&T U-Verse routers are tied into their management system. The management system has full control over each router.

I thought so.

 

Anyone is security conscious should install a router behind their 2Wire.

The 2WIRE gateway won't bridge, so adding another router could potentially have negative impacts on your internet browsing speed.

After installing a Linksys WRT54GL router behind a 2Wire i138HG everything worked but the latency (ping) was so high and internet so slow that couldn't use this method.

Adding to this. Port 7547 is always open on a NVG589. Probably a backdoor in for ATT.
