Hi all! So my wife and I recently bought a house and I installed all of our stuff after the lengthy process of running ethernet to all but one room (couldn't access it due to attic construction) AT&T Uverse installed their router, and let me do the rest. Currently, the set up is as follows: Wall ---> [UVERSE] ----> [Airport Extreme BRIDGE MODE] ----> [16 port Switch] ----> Rooms I turned the wireless in the Uverse box off and set my AE to dual band and all was fine until I noticed my Nest thermostat CONSTANTLY dropped its connection. Thinking this was something to do with the wireless settings, I tried changing channels, making the guest network 802.11b. After some basic troubleshooting and power cycling, turns out I had no Internet whatsoever. I called Uverse they said there's line issues and are sending someone out, but I want to make sure I've got the networking down. Currently the AE is in bridge mode, but I wonder if there's a better way? Thoughts? I also have the Uverse TV boxes and wireless TV receiver sending unit plugged into the Uverse box, but those still seem to work fine even when the Internet is not.
