    Use to have Comcast broadband with WiFi through Linksys WRT160N v3. Worked great - loved the speed. Didn't realize when we got u-Verse that their 2Wire router was only 'g'. Hooked Linksys up to Ethernet port of the 2Wire and can see the SSID but don't know what configuration changes are needed on each to get wireless n back. I only have one computer, an Xbox 360 and one printer hardwired into 2wire. All the rest of the ipods and laptops in the house are wireless.

    1-What changes do I need to make on the 2wire configuration (which I can get to no problem)?

    2-How do I get to Linksys to be able to make changes? Previous IP address of appears to be in same range as 2wire so I don't understand what to do with it to work with it.

    Change the Local IP Address in your Linksys to like in this thread and see if it helps (or

    Otherwise ask AT&T to disable wireless and make the modem/router into a modem only.
