Ethernet connection for AT&T modem DC UPS?

Sprint wants to send me a Signal Booster to connect to my AT&T wireless modem which is a DC UPS.  I cannot find any place to connect it.  Help!

Re: Ethernet connection for AT&T modem DC UPS?

In an AT&T Internet configuration you have an Residential Gateway (or RG) which serves as modem, router and wireless router.  This may be powered by a UPS that provides DC power.  However, it is not itself a DC UPS.

 

Am I to understand that Sprint is providing you with a femptocell (aka Micro Tower, Cell Tower in a box, etc.) and that you need to connect it to your Internet Connection.  That should be accomplish with just a Cat5e patch cable with RJ45 plugs on each end.  One into the femptocell, the other into one of the Ethernet ports (marked in yellow) on the RG.

Re: Ethernet connection for AT

Hello -



I do not know where the RG (Residental Gateway?) is. I was on the phone for
an hour with a Tech Connect guy and looked all over the house and in the
attic and cannot find anything that looks like a modem. He's sending a tech
person to find it for me.



The only thing that looks like an Ethernet connection port is on the wall
behind the TV.



If you can provide any other info, that would be great.

Re: Ethernet connection for AT

Do you have an AT&T wired Internet package, either U-verse or DSL?
