I agree that a gateway is not meant to be a "secure" connection (like what is meant by https type "secure"). However, keep in mind that my original question was asking about the possibility of a virus on the gateway. That has been cleared up.

gregzoll_1, Thanks for the help. I still have a lot of checking/testing to do before I trust this gateway as a "secure" connection, but so far so good. I'll check out the "Layered Security" links.

The infection did come through Internet Explorer. I now use Chrome. When it comes to a Web-of-Trust add on (for Chrome), is this the one you were describing? https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/wot/bhmmomiinigofkjcapegjjndpbikblnp?hl=en And, is this the Microsoft Security Essentials that you mentioned? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/security-essentials-d...

I used to do financial transactions on machines that I would now call "unsecure", until my identity was stolen. Since then, I have become really picky. The virus that stole key data from me was picked up at a Reuters News site (a supposedly safe site). I had enough anti-virus stuff on my end to catch it right after it happened, but it still happened. I had to live through...

I don't know if I do or don't have a virus (I don't know how to check). The reason that I'm asking is because I'm about to rearrange my internet requirements. I have both general internet needs (e-mail, browsing, file/program downloads, etc), and some "secure" internet needs (financial data, secure data, etc). I'm currently using the 3600HGV for general "non-secure" needs...

Is it possible for a 3600HGV gateway to get a virus? If so, 1. How can I tell if I have a virus? 2. How do I get rid of the virus? 3. What can I do to avoid getting the virus again?

Ooooh. Thanks for clearing that up. It looks like I'll have to rearrange my plans. Without some kind of "in-hand backup", I may have to shift a lot of things to another service. Thanks

Next time I call the "2020" number, I'll try the "Tier 2" route. I don't expect AT&T to swap out the backup modem that I'm about to purchase. The backup will only be used when my existing modem is down. Then, I'll send my existing modem back to be fixed. When I get the existing modem back, it will replace my backup modem. The problem is, the modem is my only way into the ...

1. I bought my gateway ($100), so if I decide to sell it, it's not stolen property. Likewise, everyone that I know that has U-verse, bought their gateway. So, I'm assuming the gateways for sale on E-bay, Craigslist, etc, were paid for by the customer. If I buy one of those, is there anything special about a 2WIRE358 versus a 2WIRExxx (where xxx is some other number)? 2. I...

Two questions. In case something goes wrong with my existing 3600HGV gateway, I want to buy a backup gateway. The yellow tag on my existing gateway says: SSID: 2WIRE358 1. When I look around for new/used gateways, they have a different number on the yellow tag. Is that, or anything else, a problem, if I swap my existing gateway for a backup 3600HGV gateway? 2. If my exist...
