I’m going to get DSL for the first time and I want to buy my own equipment. The AT&T website says I need a DSL Modem and an AT&T Wireless Gateway.
Is a wireless gateway what I have always been referring to as a wireless router(the thing that broadcasts the DSL hard line as a wireless network around the house)?
Does the fact that AT&T precedes ‘wireless gateway’ mean that its an AT&T brand gateway, or will any manufacturer do?
Are there combo DSL modem/wireless gateways?
Can someone give me a general description of a home DSL wireless setup? The way I’ve always understood it is that the phone line plugs into the back of my computer/modem. This is the computer from where I administer the network. I then connect that to a wireless router which broadcasts the DSL as a wireless network. Then other computers with a wireless adapter can connect. Is this right?
