Modem/router compatibility

I have a Motorola 4111N router/modem and I currently DSL service. I am looking to switch from DSL to Uverse. Is my router compatible to run Uverse?

No, the Motorola 4111N is not compatible with either technology used by AT&T U-verse.

What modem you need to get depends on what technology is available to you where you're going to be installed, either VDSL2 or ADSL2+.  

 

If you're Internet only, or Internet and Voice, then AT&T will require you to own the router.  AT&T charges $100 for a device with a 1 year warranty.  There is no where else that you can purchase a new router (because AT&T loads custom firmware with a security certificate for authentication in them), but you may find a used one on eBay.  Getting AT&T to activate such a router is harder than it should be, but possible.  AT&T has just come out with newer model routers better than the predessors, enough better that I'd advise you to get a new one.  If they try to sell you the NVG 510, however, you should suggest they pick something better for you since you're buying it.

 

If you're an IPTV customer (solely, or in combination), then AT&T will require that you lease the device and they'll provide one that suits your configuration.
