If the loopback is browser dependent, also be sure to disable IPv6 on the AT&T router. The IPv6 implementation is buggy. (That's too bad because IPv6 will be the future of the Internet, so this bug is a setback to moving the Internet infrastructure forward.)

I have everything (including loopback) working nicely with a Linksys EA9200 wifi router behind the NVG589. Originally it took me a while to figure it out. If I remember correctly the NVG589 is quirky with some third party wifi routers but works fine with others, because of some design change that AT&T made. On the NVG589 I am using allocation mode: passthrough, DHCPS-fixe...

The summary sounds right. I eventually got the loopback working with the Linksys WRT1900AC router behind the NVG589.

Also if anyone is experiencing very slow loading on some websites with the NVG589 and IP Passthrough, disable IPv6 on your personal router: http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r29352935-New-AT-T-UVerse-Power-tier-slow-only-for-some-major-websites-

For the "standard" passthrough setting that works with the Linksys WRT1900AC, I noticed that the DNS is very slow (web pages slow to lookup initially). When the Linksys fetches its DHCP setting, the primary DNS server is assigned to point to the NVG589 (192.168.2.254). In order to assign my own direct DNS servers, I wrote down all the assigned WAN settings in my Linksys s...

Since my previous post, I experimented with several different routers. Some of them work with frostcall's settings (for example Linksys WRT1900AC), others will not work with those settings (for example D-Link DIR-868L) and require my settings instead to route traffic normally. Therefore it appears that the peculiar pseudo-bridged mode on this NVG589 is implemented in some...

What is your NVG589 firmware version? Mine is 9.1.0h4d38.

Jeffer, I don't see anything in that thread that indicates anyone was able to get loopback working behind the NVG589. While in theory it should be the role of the passthrough personal router, the NVG589 has a quirky way of configuring this pseudo bridged mode, and in practice it appears that no one can get the loopback working, regardless of the model of the 2nd router. A...

Important fix to frostcall's original post This is a convoluted bridged mode workaround for the NVG589 and I hope AT&T fixes this with a firmware update. I thought the "Power" tier was supposed to be an upgrade, but this NVG589 firmware is a major downgrade for users with 2nd routers, IP cameras, home automation systems, etc. I couldn't reach the broadband public IP via d...

I signed up to upgrade the UVerse service speed (power plan), originally scheduled for today, Friday. No one showed up. No one attempted to contact me or even send me an email. Then I logged back into my account to see what's going on, and I see that my appointment has been mysteriously moved to Monday instead. So I just wasted a vacation day off work for no one to show u...

Thanks sirkgm14vg, with your explanation I think I finally understand what DECA is now. Perhaps another reason why DirecTV decided to go with Ethernet over coax is because they don't want to have to install a second cable (Ethernet) across everyone's attic. Imagine all the money saved on installation. If your explanation is correct, DECA winds up using the same LAN traffi...

DirecTV should have some technical explanation of "how DECA works" but I have yet to come across such a guide. It does not make sense to me that if I plug my regular home LAN Ethernet cable into the back of the DVR, that it would disable DECA. Here is what happened: before I ran a separate Ethernet cable to the home entertainment equipment, I was using the DECA adapter wi...
