I was kinda shocked that the "enterprise" solution didn't offer such "simple" functionality; with the Linksys it was default configuration that I never enabled.
Mike, FWIW, in my part of the country, DirectTV's internet offering is ATT U-Verse; not sure if that's the same everywhere, but something worth checking into. If so, you have one less option...
I had ATT Uverse here for many years until ATT sold all of it's wireline service in Connecticut to Frontier Communication. Now it is the same technology renamed Frontier VantageTV. DirectTV is a satellite service owned by ATT as compared to the Uverse which comes into the house on copper wire and is owned by ATT.
The content packages are very different between Frontier VantageTV and DirectTV here in Connecticut.
