Hey all, First time posting and I didn't see any 802.11 specific threads. I was wondering if AT&T offered an 802.11n router. The one I have b/g and serves as the wireless hub for my house. I do a lot of file transferring my various computers, family photos, music streaming, games etc. So being able to do so at N speeds would be very important. Thanks in advance for any guidance..
Nope, no N version available at this time.
Your best bet would be to get an access point that supports N, use that, and disable wireless on the RG.

Remember, you'll only get N speeds between devices on the N router, not from the RG.

Your Results May Vary, In My Humble Opinion

You don't necessarily have to use a wireless N device as a router and turn the RG into a modem. You can just put the wireless N device into a mode where it just acts as a wireless access point rather than a router. Basically, what you'll do is just not use the WAN port at all, but instead just plug it's LAN port into the RG, and disable DHCP on it. Then disable wireless on the RG.
I've done this with a TrendNet router so that I have wireless N.

Thanks again for your earlier advice -- did you have a link to an article that talks about this procedure?
If it matters, I would be using the 2Wire and an Apple Airport Extreme.

To disable wireless on the U-Verse RG, go to the RG at http://192.168.1.254. Go to Settings -> LAN -> Wireless, and change the Wireless Interface to Disabled, and click the Save button at the bottom.
Connect the LAN port of your Airport Extreme to one of the U-Verse RG's Ethernet ports (outlined in yellow).
Now, you'll need to configure two things on the Airport Extreme:
1. Disable DHCP.
2. Set up your wireless settings like you want (SSID, encryption, etc.)
Unfortunately, I can't tell you how to do those things on the Airport Extreme, as I know nothing about Apple products. But you should be able to find instructions on that on the web or from the Apple documentation.
