Some including myself have noticed the UVerse RG wireless can be a little flakey with some wireless network interface cards at least, and maybe when the spectrum is crowded.
For this reason, you can use your own access point or extra router with its DHCP turned off and connected via one of its LAN ports to the RG (not the WAN... at least in my experience, double-NAT can be problematic... others disagree with me, but all I can do is report my experience, and I'm pretty savvy about networking issues, at least to an intermediate level (understand subnets, DTE vs DCE, etc.)).
If you do this, you'd probably be wise to use the opportunity to upgrade to N-gear anyway... it's backward compatible, so you can upgrade the rest of your computers over time.

I too have experienced frequent wireless dropouts. I have followed somejoe's steps and changed my wireless channel, etc. I have discussed with a T2 rep and they stated my RG had reset an unusually high number of times over a 24hr period (can't remember how many) and sent a tech out to replace my RG. Replacing the RG has not solved this issue.
I am planning on using an aftermarket router (Netgear) and seeing if that alleviates the problems. I will update.

That's what I ended up doing.
And could be something unknown (my UFO joke) causing a problem. Think I discovered what ours was, neighbors with a baby must have had a baby monitor; after they moved, wireless had no problems.
They replaced my RG 3 times...save your sanity, go with another router for wireless.

So I would simply put my old router into one of the LAN ports and use that Wireless instead? Yes
Any problem logging into the new router? Not really

This connectivity problem started my second week and went on for three days, lasting a minute or so each time, several times per evening. But it's NOT a wireless issue - its the main feed because it affects TV, not just the internet, and on the longer "drops" it even affects the phone (VOIP) service.
Tech support put me through the usual - resetting each TV box, resetting my modem/wireless router but since its intermittent there's no way to tell what helps and was obious they were just guessing . As an early adopter of DSL years ago, I cringe thinkinig maybe once again their marketing isn't far ahead of their capacity. Maybe some of you remember "DSL hell" I just hope this isn't a replay.
