I can't set up a reliable wifi service. Pls help I have AT&T u-verse service. It provides TV service in two TVs and Internet DSL. I was given AT&T's NGV589 modem and also have an AirPort Extreme Time Capsule and two AirPort Express devices. This is the situation: The modem can't be configured as a bridge. It's a dead end. If someone knows how to do it, pls help. I disabled the wireless on it and connected the extreme to the Ethernet port. On the Extreme I created a secured wireless network. From it, a cable connects to an Ethernet switch that distributes wired signal throughout the home. An Airport express connects to this switch and creates another network with the same name and security. This is all done according to apples own instructions. But it's performance is unreliable. The wireless connection drops on a random fashion. The devices can not see or connect to it and the correct password is not accepted, also very random. The internet connected things: two thermostats, some connected lights and a doorbell lose the connection all the time. The cellphones and iPads refuse to connect. Airport utility also reports very non consistent network status. Sometimes it drops on one or both devices, and sometimes even show no internet connection. Or show that the device has an amber light when the actual light is green I have gone through power down, reset, revise and change cables, switch channels for auto to manual. Nothing has helped. I know AT&T are useless as the only thing they recommend is to plug/unplug. This never happened when I had comcast cable. Also my home was smaller and I did not have as many wireless things. Please help. Can I buy another modem that does TV and AT&T Internet? I'm suspicious that they are not compatible. Comcast does nod service this area and I'm stuck Anyone knows how to strip this modem from routing and use it as bridge? Thanks. There is a Miriad of settings in the modem and the airports that I don't know how to set, maybe it's a stupid setting that I have wrong. I'm desperate. Right now typing using cellular data. The network crashed again.
