You may have changed Internet service provider or simply changed your router. Or, for some reason, you have now finished with a new AT&T U-shaped router and are trying to build a new network.
How to feed a U-shaped router
1. Connect the router to your laptop or desktop computer using an Ethernet cable: Just connect it to a LAN port of your PC or laptop! – Access can be via Wi-Fi or even over the phone, but we recommend that you do this via Ethernet, as this is the most reliable and stable method.
2. After switching on the units, you will see a network marked ATTXXXXXX or 2WIREXXXX. (The letters X stand for the variables). As soon as you connect the cable, your device automatically connects to your router.
3. If you connect over Wi-Fi, try to connect using the default password printed on your router.
4. Go to http://192.168.1.254 in your browser.
5. If you haven’t entered your password yet, leave it blank and press Enter. If this does not work, enter the password printed on your router.

Once you’ve installed everything, AT&T is God’s gift of modernity: a flawless system that not only gives you fast Internet access, but also access to digital television and telephone! (Say goodbye to the separation of telephone and cable television accounts).
Well, we won’t look any further – this article will give you instructions on how to set it up in the easiest way.
You probably don’t even have to work on this manual, because we already made it for you.
This section explains how to connect to your AT&T U-Router and then start configuring your network according to your needs.
What is the U-password?
Take a look at the wireless network key or the device access code or system password printed on your router. I
If you are using a 3600HGV router or a router that comes in two boxes, the password can be printed on another box installed outside your home. If it is not available, please contact AT&T.
If you are in the MAC, you may need to enter a $-sign at the beginning of your password.
TIP: In some cases you may get a router that you have used before and the default password has been changed. In this case, try rebooting the router.
Resetting the U-shaped router
1. There is a reset button recessed in the back of the router.
2. Just take a pen or other object with a sharp tip and press it for about 15 seconds until the milling light blinks and comes on.
3. Then try logging in using the default password printed on your router.
4. If errors persist, contact your AT&T representative.
A complete and difficult restart is worth a try if you’re unlucky at the top.
What is your reverse IP address?
Default IP address = 192.168.1.254.
Open your web browser. Enter http://192.168.1.254 (without quotes) in the address bar. This is the default IP address. If it has been changed, a reboot of the router should do its job.
If the default address has changed, there is a way to get the current IP address:
Finding the U-shaped IP address
1. If you are in Windows, press the Windows key on your keyboard and the R key at the same time.
2. Type cmd without quotes on the command line of the pop-up window and press Enter to open the command line window.
3. Type ipconfig and press the Enter key. A lot of information about your adapter will appear in your window.
4. Locate the default gateway, next to the sequence of numbers you will see a U-shaped IP address – see figure below.
5. This is the address you enter in your web browser.
Default gateway on command line
If you’re on a MAC, select System Preferences from the Apple menu. Press the network and select the connection you currently have. Find the address record in the router section. That’s exactly what you’re looking for here.
Using a Dedicated Router with the U-version ofAT&T.
The AT&T U-shaped service offers its subscribers a modem with an integrated router.
However, the AT&T router is only a 802.11n 2.4GHz, which means you probably want to use your own router with the latest 802.11 ac Wi-Fi capabilities to easily transfer large files over Wi-Fi and stream the latest episodes of your favorite TV show in HD.
To do this, you need to disable your built-in router and use an AT&T U-back with your own router.
For this scenario, we assume that your Internet service is already configured and that you already have access to the Internet. Here it is, step by step:
If you don’t have Internet access, check.
How to use your own U-shaped routerAT&T
1. First connect your own router by connecting the Ethernet cable to the WAN port of your router with the LAN port of the AT&T router.
2. Open a browser and enter the IP address. The default IP address is http://192.168.1.254. You can now configure the U-shaped router on the page you just opened.
3. Find the wireless setting under Most Important Things to Do, then find the Wi-Fi setting and turn it off.
Congratulations! You have now managed to disable the U-modem’s built-in router.
The following steps depend on the brand of the router you are using.
However, this process must be the same for all routers. We recommend that you read your router’s manual or online documentation if the steps below do not work.
4. Type the router’s IP address into your web browser. (If you don’t know what this is about, see the previous section on obtaining an IP address).
5. When the configuration page opens, look up the router settings.
6. Go to the network part of the router and look for a DHCP mode or bridge mode option. Since you are going to connect your router to a modem with a built-in router, you will need to connect it via the gateway.
U-Fresh configuration with your own router
This allows your router to use the IP address of your AT&T modem, allowing you to send Wi-Fi instead of the built-in router you just turned off.
Now bring a laptop or mobile phone. You can now see your Wi-Fi connection via your device. If you are successful, should you be able to connect and access the Internet?
