AT&T DSL + Wireless

This week we've had 3 clients receive new DSL routers from AT&T. Some of you are using AT&T DSL as your backup Internet access and some of you are using it as a primary connection. Either way you may be soon receiving a new router is your haven't already.

There are a couple of things to know about this new router.

  • It is not a firewall
  • It provides wireless access to the Internet only. Not the Internal network.
  • If you do not intend to provide free Internet access to everyone nearby your office, then we need to turn off (best) or secure the wireless router with WPA2 security.
  • The wireless security feature is built-in but not configured by default.

If AT&T sends you one please give us a call so we can configure it securely for your network.
