i recently had to install a new gateway as the old one went bad. I was not able to restore my wifi settings from the old gateway as explained in the directions. No biggie, I'll just reconfigure the wireless settings on my phones and tablets.
no luck in getting the wireless receivers to connect. I have reset the wap, rebooted the gateway, and tried the connection process at least 20 times with no success. Most often I get connection did not work. Sometimes it tells me that it connected but then I get the message that AT&T Uverse TV is not available at this time. It also displays a button to Restart the Receiver. I have waited for this to go away, pressed the button. Neither method lets me connect.

Have you tried a whole house reboot? Unplug the DVR and all other STB's, restart the gateway. Once the gateway has restarted (all lights green), plug in the DVR and let it restart. Then plug in the next STB and let it completely restart, repeat for all other stb's.

For wirelss reciever issues steps to get it to connect
unplug the WAP for no less than 10 seconds
plug back in.
verify link and pair light are light and blinking green (link)
unplug wirelss reciever (rear left corner) no less than 10 second
plug back in should have connection without a need to reboot the modem
once reconnect verify locaiton of the wap
WAP / Wireless reciever can not be:
with in 2 feet of the modem or any modem
near anything with EMI (eletronic magnetic inteference... led lights (tvs have LEDs lights never put behind it )/ hollagen lights/ near gaming units (xbox/ps4 etc) that have wireless controls/ not next to a base for a cordless phone/ not near mircowave/ can not be infront of anything glass or mirror (glass reflects light signal is light) /space heaters with remotes etc
on the floor. wirless signal travels across and down should be at least 3 feet up off the ground the higher the better
enclosed where the signal cant get past (entertainment centers / or behind anything massive (outside of a wall)
hope this helps

I did the full house reboot twice and my wireless receivers are still not connecting. Please help. Everything else is great, but no tv in upstairs rooms.

What error messages are you getting?
Are you getting good signal lights on the Wireless Receiver?
Are there lights on the WAP? What are they?

Never worked since replacing the gateway?
I suspect a wiring issue.....
The WAP has an Ethernet cable that needs to be plugged into one of the four yellow ports on gateway. Unplug the cable (both ends) and make sure they snap into place.
Next bring the wireless receiver to the closet TV to the WAP (generally the DVR).
Using the cable from TV connection plug the wireless receiver in and go thru setup. Connection stage. If does not work, perform a factory reset of the wireless receiver forcing a software update.
If still not working, leads to the question....
Why was the gateway replaced?
If from a near lightening strike, possible the WAP was also damaged requiring a new WAP.
