Hello Experts,

I feel like punching AT&T in the face. I would like to use my Asus RT-N10+ wireless router as my primary router. I have the 2WIRE 3800HGV-B gateway and I hate its lack of features.

What I did was to connect an ethernet cable fromt he WAN port of the ASUS router to a regular ethernet port of the RG. Then i went on the RG and i disabled the wireless functions. I found the router and i made it DMZ plus mode.

Since yetserday my interent connection through the ASUS router was been garbage and really slow. I cant connect to xbox live. However, I am able to wok just fine connected to the ethernet port of my RG. I've had this setup for a month and at worst i would have to reboot the router but now it just will run really slow.

I have done factory restore to the ASUS router and the problem persists. Maybe I am doing something wrong ?

Thanks.

"I feel like punching AT&T in the face."

I feel the same way sometimes!

I have a 2-Wire from AT&T also, and we have troubles whether or not I use my own router in the DMZ like yours.  So my only suggestion would be to run a continuous ping and see what the response time is, both directly on the 2-Wire and on your ASUS.  If it is consistently more than 70ms, or you have lots of failures, call AT&T and let them know.

I gave up on my dream. But I adopted an alternate one.

I flahed my asus with ddr-wt and I am now using it as an Access point. What I truly cared for was the ability to set the Qos for each device so I am truly happy now :).

Thanks for your input, kbirecki.

I HATE XBOX 360. WTF ? My solution worked fine. Then all of a sudden on the 3rd day my lame azz xbox wont connect to my freakin access point. Yet all my other wireless clients connect to it just fine. I get the horrible excuse for a console error message to check my passphrase for the network and it just won't freaking connect ! WTF WTF WTF WTF. So I destroyed my Asus access point in a fit of rage and after smashing it to pieces threw it in the ocean and it felt really good. But now i have the same problem with a new asus access point of the exact same model.


Here is what I have tried and failed with:

1) I have done factory restored on xbox 360.
2) I have set everything manually
3) I have removed network and added again
4) I have power cycled both the access point and the xbox.
5) read all the useless articles on uPnp options that I have to enable.

This just happen today. I was fine for 3 days and now it decided to act like a lame piece of chinese handywork.

I know that the xbox works because I can pick up my neighbors wifi just fine.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
