Has anyone set up failover with AT&T uverse?

  • I need to set up failover with AT&T U-Verse and a cable modem.  The installer said that the 2-Wire router that comes with the install by AT&T cannot be removed as it handles the TV portion of the U-Verse signal.

    It seems that my next option would be to put the pfSense box in the DMZ of the 2-Wire router.  The 2-Wire has a DMZ mode called

    Allow all applications (DMZplus mode) –  Set the selected computer in DMZplus mode. All inbound traffic, except traffic which has been specifically assigned to another computer using the “Allow individual applications” feature, will automatically be directed to this computer. The DMZplus-enabled computer is less secure because all unassigned firewall ports are opened for that computer.

    Note: Once DMZplus mode is selected and you click DONE, the system will issue a new IP address to the selected computer. The computer must be set to DHCP mode to receive the new IP address from the system, and you must reboot the computer. If you are changing DMZplus mode from one computer to another computer, you must reboot both computers.

    Has anyone done this?


  • I think this thread might interrest you:

    Also i kind of remember about a thread trying to figure out what the TV-part was.
    I think it had something to do with the TV-traffing beeing on another VLAN or something like that, but i cannot find the thread anymore…

    edit: found it: http://forum.pfsense.org/index.php/topic,4491.0.html
    But i think it's not related :(
