Hi, I have AT&T internet access and it was connected with an ATT 2Wire Gateway wireless router.  The router is now working and I was wondering if I can put a Linksys router I have in its place.  If so, please provide me with the steps to get it setup.  Thank you.

typically the 2WIre is a DSL modem and a router, so usually you can not switch it for another router unless you first put in a modem.

Sometimes you can put the gateway into Bridge mode to bypass its built-in router, then you could disable the 2wire's wireless and connect the Linksys. Hard to give specifics (or know for sure if it's even possible) without knowing what models of the 2wire and Linksys the units are, though.

Thanks to all for your input.  AT&T did replace my router/modem (2wire) with another one and all is working fine.
