This happened within the space of 2 hours this afternoon. Everything was working fine. We left the house, when we came back, tried to access internet, and nothing would connect. We have an iPhone, iPad, and a Windows laptop, ALL of which had access this morning, but now they do not. I CAN connect wirelessly to the 2Wire router with all of them and bring up the admin screen, but I CANNOT connect to the interent with any of them. The computer I'm typing this on is my wired connection, and it can access Internet just fine. I have tried rebooting the 2Wire router, and that didn't work.
Any suggestions or explanations welcomed.

I'm in Illinois, and just a while ago it looks like ATT Uverse lost it's DNS services...therefore I can't get to the Internet. My Vonage still works, probably because it must bypass ATT DNS. I'm waiting for tech support...the second time; they hung up on me as they finally answered the first time.

This doesn't really appear to address my particular issue, unfortunately - I can connect to the Internet with my wired computer just fine (as shown by this post) but none of my wireless connections can. They could 4 hours ago...

You may want to give it another try.
ATT, alegedly, had DNS issues again. I saw on another post that its now working for them. What I've also done is specified additional DNS servers such as Apple's or Googles (188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206)

Hmmm... might try that - this machine does have a different DNS than the router... Thanks for the tip, hope it works.

MacOverAll - changed DNS in iPad, and it's working now. Can't believe I didn't think of that myself. Thanks for the idea!

@TrblNRiverCity - apologies. Actually, what you posted appears to have been EXACTLY what my problem was, I didn't realize I had changed the DNS settings on my main machine a LONG time ago. If I had been thinking clearly I would have figured that out
