I will try to send a private message but I really do not have time or patience to sit online chatting on issue or spending my whole day on the phone doing the same tests I have done to get no result then have another tech come out with no resolution..But I will try.. Thanks

The guys in the U-verse escalation group are different from the script readers you get when calling in or on chat.  It's definately worth the try.

My suggestion would be to go into your RGs control panel via 192.168.1.254
Get the Device Access Code/System Password from the side of the RG, it is NOT the same as the wireless network key. Then goto your wireless network configuration page. Find the wireless channel and make sure it's NOT on AUTO. If it is, lock it into a channel besides 1, 6, or 11. I usually use 9. I'd be willing to bet money it will at least make it better. It won't always fix it, but that auto channel feature is garbage and they should remove it from the gateways.  I've helped countless customers with this issue as a Uverse Phone Tech. I've found that most people with iPads or other Apple devices will notice the issue the fastest. I don't know why but it seems to effect them worse. There is probably an 80% chance this will fix your wifi issues!

The problem with the gaming systems is that the correct ports need to be forwarded in the firewall settings on the gateway.  They are in the same page that I mentioned in my previous message. Just make sure to go to the firewall settings page. There are presets for a lot of the gaming systems, you just have to assign them to the correct IP addresses on the network.

Only in some cases, I have a PS3, DS, several ROKU's and a Slingbox and I've not once had to open any ports on my firewall to allow them through.
