Wi-Fi for Your Home
Stay Connected with the AT&T Wi-Fi Gateway
You know what they say—home is where the best internet access is. And if you’re juggling multiple devices, gaming, streaming several shows at once, and working from home, then you need internet that works as hard as you. Fortunately, AT&T Internet plans have your back. Choose the best plan for you and get the AT&T Wi-Fi Gateway router, so you can connect your devices wirelessly within your home.
- Don’t set up your router in the corner of the room.
- Rather, place your router in a central location, up high, and within view in the room where you most use the internet.
- Avoid placing your router near brick walls or concrete.
- Signals can only travel so far, and concrete and brick absorb your router’s Wi-Fi signals and weaken their strength.
- Keep your router away from the kitchen.
- Kitchens are full of metal objects and appliances that scatter and deflect your router’s signal.
- Strategically position your router’s antenna.
- Place the Gateway vertically if you want to spread your Wi-Fi signal horizontally. If you want the Wi-Fi to spread vertically between floors, place the Gateway horizontally.
- Extend your Wi-Fi
- Our powerful gateways provide excellent coverage, but larger homes may require additional coverage. Be sure to ask your technician about AT&T Smart Wi-Fi Extenders.
