I can add that a wireless doorbell brought down my whole system - it used household wiring as a giant FM antenna which VDSL doesn't like!

I have a LINKS WRT-54G wireless gateway. I want to use it as a wireless access point (WAP). How should I set it up to avoid conflicts with the 2WIRE residential gateway. It will connect to the RG through my homes hard-wired Ethernet 10/100 network. Thanks!

My 2WIRE shows neighbors' PDAs - two iPhones and 1 Blackberry. I edited the 2WIRE MAC filter to include the three introducing devices by MAC addresses (pulled from the 2WIRE RG). After saving, etc., the devices did not disappear from my 2WIRE network settings - although all are shown as inactive on the 2WIRE. I have two WAPs (one Linksys and one NetGear). Both are set to ...

RESOLVED: The dirty or noisy power situation was checked by an electrician who said nonsense. All grounding was fine. I recalled a message I read on the forum - beware of wireless door bells broadcasting AM signals through home's power grid . Within 1 second of extracting the wireless door bell ringer from its 110 volt AC plug, the RG snapped into synch and has not since ...

AT&T returning tomorrow. What can they do? Could they wire the NID to the ground the house power is on (the water main). Does that fall under a separate technician's purview - or could the uVerse installers do it while they are there?

The NID is grounded to a different ground that the electrical panel - I confirmed this yesterday. The NID is grounded to an in-ground ground (both are obviously outside the house). The electricity inside is grounded to the city water line (a code requirement in Kansas City, MO).

Thanks to everyone for smart responses; is it possible the NID is grounded to a different ground than the electrical service - yes. Is that a problem - or is a ground is a ground is a ground and if they are both grounded that is all that matters? I talked to an EE who mentioned "floating grounds" - would the RG have synched up on battery if the ground it were on (from the ...

Additionally: Tech demonstrated that my power was noisy - wired coax from the RG to my electrical system ground - RG again failed to synch. RG synched fine using battery - as long as battery not plugged into household poor.

My installation failed when the RG synched perfectly on battery power and then dropped. The RG stayed in synch until the technician plugged in the battery backup (Belkin). Has anyone heard of this problem? Kansas City operations manager in Kansas City at 8th and Oak Street pointed toward noise on the power line. I heard that there is a device available from AT&T that can ...
