Since our NVG510 gateway died, we have been using the Pace 5268AC gateway. Our wireless connection is dismal, at best. Obviously this is a known problem with these gateways.

Is there a way to improve the signal from the 5268? Is there any way to add external antennas to this unit? How upset will AT&T be if I opened the 5268 to check if antenna connectors are present on the board?

I recently switched to AT&t wireless. I have been able to reconnect all network devices such as wireless printer, LG tv, Alexia, Harmony hub, etc. I have been trying to connect my Pioneer VSX-90 AV receiver to the wireless network utilizing the app, but it fails every time. The receiver was connected to my previous network. Would this be a result of the dual band of the pace receiver, or is there another possible cause. Thanks, Rick

I have a 2wire 5268AC modem/router from ATT and I attached with network cable to a TP link Deco mesh network and was told I have to put the ATT router into a bridge mode but I have no way to connect directly to the 2wire unit (laptop doesn't have network connection).     I also have one other network cable attached to the 2wire unit that goes to a Wireless Access Point that the ATT tech attached when we added an additional TV to the system.  

How do I get the 2wire unit into bridge mode with no direct network cable capability?
