recently just switched from suddenlink to att. I was under the impression that I had to have a home phone to get at&t but when I went into the store they informed me that I didn't and I was able to get at&t dsl internet for 20.00 per month and I love it. Plus I was able to buy an inexpensive modem too

We've had AT&T DSL now for almost 3 years and love it. We had used a Satellite service before and was always having problems. We were always told it was on our end. Since we have gotten DSL we have never been down.

DSL is much slower than cable.Suddenlink has pretty good customer service and we have been with them for many years. And you don't have to pay service charges for 2 pcs. Just buy a router :)

bookiesboosmom , you could have just used a wired or wireless router and run both computers on one connection.. I have suddenlink and there is 5 computers and an Xbox 360 online. I've suddenlink for along time, way back when it was cox.. No complaints. Tried to get At&t dsl. They said they could get me the fastest speed. a week went by and no net. I called and they said " Oh sorry we're not able to hook you up at the fastest speed." They never called me during the week to inform me there was a problem..

i tried doing that with sudden link...but they said we would have to put the xbox on a different thing and then one for the computer...we asked them about wireless and they said the xbox wouldn't pick it up....hhmmmm maybe it was a person on a bad day lol. beats me......i might switch back, but i like paying 30 a month for internet..i was paying 55 a month with suddenlink, i just have to wait and see. thanks for the tip tho

Hmm, whoever you spoke with doesn't have a clue or is just trying to get more money. I have a 2 computers and the xbox 360 wired to a hub that is connected to a router. the other 3 comps are wired to the router. I have no problems with speeds or connections and still pay for only 1 connections. As far as wireless make sure your router is the same band as the network adapter for the xbox and that the wireless feature is turned on in the router.

I think what u mean is that u bought another one of their modems which u would have to pay for to get it to work what u need is a hub or router from walmart or something.

i bought the 2nd router from walmart. they told me in order to have both of them using internet at the same time...i had to pay the extra 25 a month..which would make my bill like 130 a month just for internet and cable...its was very confusing

hmm. Trust me. I have a router and a hub wired to my cable modem. I have 5 computers and an Xbox 360 on my network. I pay one bill. it's like $70 a month i think but it's because i have the fastest connection. You do not have to pay 2 bills nor do you need 2 modems. There is no need to pay 2 bills. My network is running 24/7 and I very seldom see any drop in speed.

I also have Suddenlink, but I think my roommate and I need to get a better router. Right now we have a Belkin brand, and use the wireless for our labtops, but we can never get YouTube or other videos to finish loading; and I can only stay signed in on the Playstation Network for a few minutes. I'm pretty sure it's a router problem; whenever I plug my labtop or my Playstation 3 directly into the modem, it works fine. Any ideas on how to resolve this issue with the router?

could be several things. Is the router on the same floor as your laptop and Playstation? And different bands, N G, have different signal strengths. I use a Netgear and was using the wireless but the computer in the living room had poor signal so i went back to wired.. One trick i did learn though it to use alluminum foil and cardboard to make the router more directional. there is videos and websites that talk about it.

AT&T Dsl is so much better! I have it at our house and we can run 3 computers wirelessly and it doesn't even slow our speeds down! It amazing. The people at the Walnut Ridge AT&T store where really helpful with it. I reccomend anyone to go get it.
