Save $$ On Modem Rental Fees

Owning your own AT&T modem can save you as much as $120 per year! Most of the AT&T modems we offer pay themselves off within about 6 months to 1 year. As a result, you’ll end up saving more than the cost of most AT&T approved modems available in a year or less from not paying your $10/month rental fee for your modem.

As with all modems, compatibility can vary based on your location and available internet plans where you live. It’s always a good idea to call your provider before you purchase any modem from us, or any other online retailer to ensure that the model you’ve selected will be a good fit for your service and be able to activate in your area as residential equipment.

AT&T Modem FAQ

How to cancel AT&T internet?

About Cancellations & Early Termination Fees:

AT&T allows cancellations within 14 days of activating your internet with them without having to pay any Early Termination fees (ETF). After that 14-day period has expired, you’ll likely be responsible for some fees and other charges that are incurred through cancellation. You’ll also be required to return any leased or rented equipment. If you’ve signed up for a plan with a term commitment, you must also pay service fees and other additional ETF charges. If you’re cancelling with AT&T, it’s definitely a good idea to look over any contracts you’ve signed and determine how much a cancellation will cost you before proceeding.

How to Cancel Your AT&T Internet:

To let AT&T know you want to cancel, you’ll need to contact them by phone during normal operating hours at +1-800-228-2020. Make sure to have your account number and account PIN handy to make the call go smoother.

How to Install AT&T Internet Yourself?

How to Connect your Replacement Modem

Tip: Take a picture of your current modem for reference while you install the new one.

  1. Transfer your existing connections one at a time to the new gateway.
  2. Plug the power cord into your new modem and then into an electrical outlet. While the new gateway powers up, don’t unplug the green data cable or the power cable. When the Service and Broadband lights go from flashing to solid green, you’re ready to go.
  3. At this point, if you are setting up a rental model, you should be good to go to browse and use your network as normal. For customer-owned equipment you’ll need to call AT&T customer service to have them add the new equipment to your account on the back end.

If you have U-verse TV, make sure you restart your DVR and all other TV receivers after the Service light turns solid green. Just press and hold the power button on each receiver for 10 seconds.

How to connect to your WiFi
  1. Locate the WiFi sticker on your new modem. In most models, this sticker will be a bright yellow or white with black text. It has your Wi-Fi network name (SSID) and password.
  2. On a computer or device you want to connect to the internet, go to the wireless network settings.
  3. Find and select your new Wi-Fi network name and then enter the 12-character password. Your device should connect to the internet.
Return your Old Equipnent

If you’re replacing a rental model, make sure you contact AT&T for return instructions to get the rental back to them.

How Do I Pick the Best Modem for my AT&T Service?

We always recommend checking out your internet plan and the modem you’re currently using from AT&T as a rental, or other equipment you’ve used with them in the past to get an idea of the type of DSL modem you’ll need.

Once you’ve narrowed down the type of modem you need, you can use our list of AT&T compatible modems and equipment to select the one that will meet your specific needs.

We always recommend calling your provider to double check before placing an order, just to ensure there will be no compatibility problems when you go to activate your new modem.
