I know I needed an at&t modem to run my DSL, so I purchased (before reading reviews) a Netgear 7550 Wireless Gateway from at&t (they did not have any "N" single user modems (if there is such a thing).I have read through other posts that it is possible to connect the two and I would not need the 7550 for anything else but a modem (disabling broadcast).
The question is ... do I REALY need to do all this or can I just get away with the 7550?Or will the Netgear WNDR-4000 750N Wireless Dual Band Router, if installed and used, fix some of the issues that other 7550 users have said in other posts?
Wireless ... I have 3 gaming systems, two PC's, a tablet and 4 smartphones.I will be using 3 wired ports ... 1 gaming system, PC, and a blue-ray.
And yes, my 2wire wireless-g gateway ran all these ... not efficiently or reliably, but they all did run.
I have not received the Netgear 7550 yet, just trying to get some opinions on which setup would be better.
