Airave with AT&T U-verse?

Airave with AT&T U-verse?

I recently got the airave from sprint and set it up with my Linksys with zero issues at all. My girlfriends parents heard that I had recieved one and wish to get one themselves, so they went to the sprint store and the tech there told them it was impossible with U-verse (3800HGV-B). I, after setting mine up, and confused as to how it could  be "impossible" but I'm not sure how to go about doing it, although I did indeed search.

Available ports are as follows:

AUX Line*

Lines 1&2 (in use)*

Phone Line (in use)*

Broadband

Local Ethernet 1-4)

USB-PC

Cable Line(coaxial cable)

* Uses Phone Jack

@ any rate, they wish to set it up so any help would be appreciated greatly. I'm not tech challenged, but not tech advanced, so keep that in mind. Haha

Thanks,

Carl

Plug one end of the ethernet cable that comes with the Airave into any of the LAN ports then plug the other end of the ethernet cable into the WAN port. Let me know how it goes.

I have ATT U-verse also but my 3 LAN ports on my ATT Gateway box are used for other network connections as I have my house wired.  Some go to 2 different Netgear ethernet switches so i can connect more devices.  I tried connecting the Airwave to the Netgear box but the lights just flash and i cannot connect to the modem from my computer (192.168.17.1) either.

Thoughts?

Hey, thank you for the reply. I'm glad you relied so quickly, I simply have just not had the time to try this yet. I will let you know if it does indeed work. I've been so busy and just forget to bring the airave to the girlfriends parents home.

The best choice would be to connect the airave's WAN port to the first available LAN port on your U-Verse modem, then connect the netgear switch to LAN 1 on the airave AP, you may also consider which devices in your home may benefit from adding wireless, A desktop computer often has an available PCI slot, or a usb port which would allow to to add wireless. To manage airave settings (192.168.17.1) you have to be using a computer connected to LAN 1 or LAN 2 on the airave.

Carl, I've worked with several people using ATT U-Verse, it has been easy to setup, make sure you connect the airave's WAN port to an Ethernet port, and not the U-Verse's WAN port.

Well, I guess my concern stems from the airave needing to go first in line if you will, after the modem, but before the wireless roter. The uverse is unusual to me. I'll try it perhaps Wednesday and get back to everyone.

Thanks

Yeah, I can understand, I would suggest connecting airave to first ethernet port, and if a separate router is envolved then I would connect it to the second ethernet port, if not to the airave's LAN 1

Thanks for the help. I connected the Airwave WAN to the U-verse Gateway LAN port and now have 3 solid green lights (Mobile, GPS and Broadband).

  The Airwave manual was not clear on how to use it with my Sprint cell phone but I made a call and heard the 3 beeps on my cell that I guess indicates it is using the Airwave (though this reference was not in the "Usng your Airwave" section.  Seems I have more bars on the phone too.  I read the GPS lock is to restrict calls to USA only and that calls started on Airwave will transfer to the Sprint network but not the other way around.  Seems pretty kewl even though I still not sure how it works

I'm glad it works, you may also login to my sprint > my preferences to adjust signal strength, and to restrict usage (like if you have alot of neighbors that use sprint)
