Having Trouble?
Many issues can be resolved in four simple steps:
1
Check your connections.
Make sure that the filters and cables on each device are connected and installed properly as described in Step 1 A-F.
Cables usually make an audible click when securely attached. If all connections are secure and you are still unable to
connect to the Internet, try another phone jack. If you have voice service on your DSL line, verify that the phone jack
has a dial tone.
Filters are not required for customers without AT&T phone service. A filter installed where it is not needed may eliminate
your DSL signal.
2
Power down, then power back up.
AT&T High Speed
Internet Service
hut down your computer, and unplug the black Power Adapter (and any other devices) from the back of the Modem/
S
Gateway. Wait 15 seconds, and then plug Power Adapter back in. Make sure the Modem/Gateway Power light comes on
(if not, try another outlet.) If your equipment has a Power button, turn it on. Turn your computer (and any other devices)
back on.

Wait for indicator lights.
Self-Installation Guide for Modem
Wait for indicator lights to turn green (may take up to 15 minutes), and then attempt to access the Internet. Modems
vary by manufacturer. For details about the correct light display for your equipment, see the manufacturer’s user guide.
4
Reset your modem.
Using a pen or pencil, press and hold your modem’s Reset button again for at least 10 seconds to clear the settings.
You will need to manually enter your settings into your modem. See the Check Modem Settings section.
Specific Issues
What if I have a monitored security system or health alarm?
When you have completed the installation, please contact your alarm
monitoring provider to test your alarm.
What if I have a cable or dial-up modem?
Cable and dial-up modems are not compatible with AT&T High Speed Internet
service. DSL equipment can be purchased at att.com/equipment
Why do I need to install filters?
Filters are only required for customers with voice service on their DSL line
due to both the regular phone line and DSL signals carried over the same line.
Without filters you may experience disruptions or hear static on phone line.
Installing a filter on every phone device shared with DSL will help eliminate
pitched tone or static noise.
Note: Filters are not necessary for customers without voice service on their
DSL line.
What if I hear static on the DSL phone line?
Make sure filters are properly installed on all phone jacks with a connected
devices (including wall-mounted phones). You can purchase additional
filters (including wall-mount filters) at att.com/equipment or most
electronics stores.
How can I get rid of the Detecting Proxy Settings Internet browser notice?
Run the Internet Connection Wizard.
In Internet Explorer® 7, you can find this wizard under Tools > Internet
Options > Connection Setup. When prompted to enter proxy settings, do not
select anything.
In earlier versions of Internet Explorer, you can find this wizard under Tools >
Internet Options > Connection Setup. When prompted to enter proxy settings,
do not select anything.
How do I upgrade from AT&T Dial Internet Service?
During registration, simply enter your existing AT&T email address (Member
ID) and your account will be updated automatically. If you do not register with
your existing AT&T email address (Member ID), you must call AT&T to cancel

(about 15 minutes).
During this time, do not unplug the black Power Adapter or green
Data Cable. This can damage the Modem/Gateway. The lights
should turn green to indicate a successful connection.
C
Find
your Modem’s IP (Internet Protocol) address and enter it into your Internet browser.
A
Turn your modem on.
If your modem does not turn on after you connect it to a power
source, push the Power button.
B
Devices vary considerably, so terms and steps for your device may differ. Please consult the user guide that came
with your device, or contact the manufacturer directly.
Reset your modem.
Using a pen or pencil, press and hold your Modem’s Reset button
(usually located on the back or bottom of the Modem/Gateway)
for at least 10 seconds. This restores the manufacturer’s original
settings, if they were previously changed.
If the lights on the Modem/Gateway
do not turn green, or are red, after 15
minutes, see the Having Trouble? section.
Depending on your Modem, the first time
you use the Modem with your new AT&T
service, an instructional wizard may appear
on your computer to assist you through
the process. The wizard may ask for a
default password or access code (found in
the Modem’s user guide or on the bottom
of the Modem), or ask you to set a security
password. This password is different from
your AT&T Member ID or password.
This address provides access to your Modem’s settings. Your IP address should be listed in the Modem’s user
guide or labeled on the bottom of the Modem. If you cannot locate this address, contact the manufacturer
directly. Listed below are the IP addresses for several popular Modems:
Motorola®http://192.168.1.254

Westell®http://192.168.1.254
Linksys®http://192.168.1.1
