Change Settings in an AT&T U-Verse Router:

AT&T u-verse is a fibre optic cable TV, digital phone and high-speed internet service line which currently runs one residential gateway and one wireless router branded for use with AT&T high-speed internet service. AT&T has been constantly providing quality service for its internet users and mobile devices and one such example is the U-Verse which allows their client to have telephone line cable and internet access using only one router. 

Accessing your AT&T router login will help you to open the web interface of your router where you can change some basic and advanced Wi-Fi settings along with configuring proper username and password for security purposes. 

The gateway is a device similar to a router used to connect multiple internet-ready devices to the same network and you must access the graphic user interface of the device to change the settings on your AT&T u-verse gateway or router. There are two types of AT&T u-verse router namely-
