Update. Mick and I have beat this poor router until it is badly
bruised. I think we tried about every option the router has. I hate
calling the AT&T service number. I usually have to go up a couple tiers
before I get someone who knows answers since I use Linux here. Windoze,
mac, they can help a bit. Linux, not the low level folks. Well, it
finally hit me, I had the cell number of a tech from several years ago.
He mostly works on phone service but he knows a bit about the DSL part
as well. He got promoted I think a while back. I texted him and found
out something I wish I had known before. The DSL box that sits up the
road does not support IPv6. That explains why nothing worked. So,
after beating on that thing, I end up with nothing but IPv4 like I had
Well, there is one improvement. I do have a very nice wireless router.
That thing has AWESOME wireless range when using those long 9db
antennas. They over a foot long but I can connect with my cell phone
300 feet down the road. ROFL Even going to the mailbox isn't a issue
now. Old router, barely made it out the door and off the porch.
Thanks to all, especially Mick, who helped with this thing. Maybe one
day, just maybe.
