ATT U-verse internet nightmare...

...so, I had to cancel it today after only having it about a week. After guy disconnected temporary cable and connected buried cable, it was out. He didn't even check to make sure it was working. Two looong calls to Philippines later and 4 days without internet, I cancelled today and got Mediacom. Whew, what a difference in just placing the order! I was done in less than 5 minutes! Man coming tomorrow morning to connect to my own modem/wifi router. Since Apple stopped making Base Stations (as they were called), I just decided to get the modem and wifi router all in one. Been using T-Mobile LTE on iPad...

Be careful with those all in one router/modem combos. My parents have that with Verizon FiOS. It comes with all default settings and they don't set up much if any security. I secured my parents router and When they next had a problem Verizon sent a technician to pull it out of service and replace it with another one that was set again to all default settings (ie little or no security).

Thanks ztrf. I'll see how this one works tomorrow. It's a Motorola.

Well, the Mediacom boys came as promised this morning, set me up quick. Internet working good again after the U-Verse fiasco. Reckon most of y'all boys here don't use ATT U-Verse, eh? Good for you's guys!

I was apparently really lucky, had a very experienced and professional Uverse installer. We haven't had a single problem in well over a year. Quite unlike Crapcast, which went out regularly, with zero useful support.

With Comcast you can put their router in Bridge mode which allows you to use your own router disabling the Comcast one. Of course the best thing to do, as long as you don't have their crappy phone service, is to buy your own modem and save the $10 a month rent that Comcast charges.
