The AT&T Wi-Fi Gateway is more than just a router that provides internet connectivity. It combines the functions of both a modem and a router to handle your home internet needs.

It is designed to seamlessly support a home full of smart devices and your most demanding Wi-Fi connections. Thanks to its advanced mesh technology, you’ll have the best and fastest connection for each of your internet needs – wherever it is needed in the home.

Have you just gotten yourself an AT&T router but you have no idea how to set it up for use? Worry less, in this article, we will provide certain information that will be useful and also describe how to access your router with ease.

What is the IP address of my AT&T router?

The IP address is required when accessing the AT&T router’s web interface to configure it. Users have reported that their AT&T routers have had the following IPS (more common higher in the list)

  • 192.168.1.254
  • 192.168.1.1

To use the IP address of your AT&T router, you need to make use of a web browser. You can check for viable browsers that we recommend. Follow the steps below to know the IP address of your AT&T router.

  1. Launch the web browser on your computer or mobile device.
  2. Visit the official AT&T page or enter any of the IP address http://192.168.1.254 above into the browser’s URL bar.

Once there, you have access to the following gateway and network features: Gateway User Interface for Wi-Fi gateways.

Is my AT&T modem also a router?

Yes, AT&T’s Wi-Fi Gateway is a modem-router combo device that not only brings the internet into your home but also transmits the signal throughout your house for whole-home Wi-Fi.

Your AT&T modem/router is required for your internet connection to work. You have the option to connect your own router. When a secondary router is connected to the AT&T modem/router it will be important to set up an IP Passthrough.

How can I access my AT&T router remotely?

  1. Connect your computer to the internet.
  2. Open your browser and type 192.168.1.254 into your address bar.
  3. You will then be directed to a login page.
  4. Once done, you will find your router’s web interface and access the Settings.
  5. Enter the Admin Login, then click Login.

What’s the difference between a router and a modem?

Your modem is a box that connects your home network to the wider Internet. A router is a box that lets all of your wired and wireless devices use that Internet connection at once and also allows them to talk to one another without having to do so over the Internet.

Often, your Internet service provider will give you one box that serves as both modem and router (just as AT&T router here) but they’re still different technologies. Do note that, not all modems include routers and not all routers have modems.

With the aforesaid, you need both router/modem, integrated or not, in order to provide an Internet connection for all the devices in your home. We also hope you’ve found your way through accessing your AT&T router at this point.
