My vacation house has UVerse and is getting 28 Mbps coming into the 2Wire unit but only getting 8-12 on wifi. I know that the 2Wire has only a G wifi router, so I think I can do much better by hooking up a spare 5th gen. Airport Extreme unit up to furnish the wifi there. I have hooked up a current generation AE to a Surfboard modem on Comcast at my home, so I've done this before. I know just enough to make me dangerous, but not enough to be certain I'm not screwing this stuff all up. The vacation house has been running for 1 year with just the UVerse wifi working and I've hooked up various wireless switches/remotes/Nest/etc to the current Uverse settings. I'd like to set up the AE so that it causes as little disruption/resetting of services as possible and just boosts the wifi signal. I have wireless UVerse boxes in the bedrooms, but as I understand it, these will not be affected by turning off the wireless in the Gateway. Can someone advise me as to what the best/easiest way to go about it and the settings that I should change to make it possible on both units. Is there a way to use the 2Wire password on the AE or will I need to set up everything on the AE(password/network name/etc) from scratch? What about the firewall for both units? Thanks in advance.
