No, that is not present. As I said, everything shows connected.
Anyway, I fixed the problem. It's not exactly pretty, but it works. Here's what I did, mainly because I've spent enough time on this crap.
I had an extra DLink 8-port switch lying around. I took that and set it next to the Netgear router. I took the ethernet Internet cable from the 2Wire that was going into the Netgear's WAN port and connected it to port #1 of the DLink hub. I then took the Netgear's ethernet cable from its LAN port #1 that was running to the HR24 and connected it to the DLink's port #2 and ran it from there to the HR24. Finally, I took an additional
ethernet cable and ran it from my DLink's port #3 then ran it
to my Netgear's WAN port.
Like I said, it ain't pretty, but it accomplishes what I wanted to accomplish in that room: getting a powerful wireless signal and maintaining my HR24's hard-wired connectivity and Whole Home connectivity.
I think this matter is now closed. For now. But feel free to scratch your head as to what I did. Like I said, I don't care; it works, and that's all that matters.
What have we all learned from this saga? Oh, that's easy--AT&T Uverse Internet sucks
. Sucks big time!
