The Uverse modem\Residential Gateway that comes with the service is one of the best 802.11G wireless routers I have ever used.   For years, I used to replace my wireless router every 3-4 months with the latest and greatest.  Since I switched to Uverse my wireless router upgrading days are over.  If you need more wired bandwidth just purchase a few gigabit switches and attach it to their remote gateway.  Their 54Mbps 802.11G modem\Residential Gateway should provide more than enough wireless bandwidth for the 18Mbps internet service.

Thanks morgan.

 

I guess I didn't realize it.  The uverse service comes with a wireless router?  That is a nice bonus I didn't expect.  What kind of range does it have?

generally around 300 feet or so.  There are a lot of factors involved though that could interfere with the signal.  Generally speaking, with wireless you will not get as good as speed compared to being directly wired via ethernet.
