Retired truck driver Mibrnsurg's (Michigan Brain Surgeon) motto is, "With just a few questions, I get them to the answer without the surgery." His data progression began with punch cards in 1969, culminating in AT&T U-verse internet in 2008 - when he began engaging in the community.

I have AT&T GigaPower 1Gb Internet service at our house.  Basically my question is what can I reasonably expect in terms of max Internet speeds on wireless devices (e.g., iPhone 6 Plus, iPad Air 2) through my AT&T (5268A) Residential Gateway?  AT&T tech support advised I should see 600+ Mbps on wireless devices, but currently I am topping out at 190 Mbps download (on the 5 Ghz band) and about 40 Mbps download (on the 2.4 band). I realize there are multiple factors (network congestion, environmental aspects, etc.) that affect Internet speed.

Well I need a booster or extender that would reach about 300 + ft from my uverse wifi to my guest house. I'm a woman so you will have to tell me what the easiest thing to do. I wish I would not have to run any cable or wires anywhere!

25 + year customer with ATT and last 5-6 have been miserable.  Putting aside the constant rate increases (why is there not a contract, and I’m sick of subsidizing the low prices for new suckers that ATT is drawing in).  At least three times in the past 5-6  years my DSl service stopped completely and the tech had to fix something at the box half a mile away.  Also, the worst is the constant dropping out of service.  No, it’s not a filter problem; no it’s not the modem.  It’s ATT.  The best thing ATT is doing right now is making me not wanting to be a customer in the future.

@Cheesed off customer   On all Uverse RGs, IPv6 causes disconnects, rebooting and browsing problems (Internet).

Disable IPv6 in all Uverse RGs info here:

If a 2wire/Pace/Arris RG (3800/3801/5031/5268) click the Go here link at top of the orange globe.


Good luck 😉

OK lemme try this one. I've moved away from the ATT DNS server, by your recommendation. Why is this occuring and when, or if, will that get fixed. I'm using Google 8.8.8.8. & 8.8.6.6
