OS: windows 7

I currently have AT&T DSL, but been real slow, all connections are good. A friend said I should upgrade the modem. Another friend gave me a AT&T 2Wire 2701HG-B Wireless gateway with Hyperb 802.11b. Will this work with windows 7, and is this new, or old tech?

Hi mate.

I would recommend that before you go ahead and replace your router, you identify what's causing the slowdown.

In your router, there should be either a log or a page showing the SNR and Attenuation stats of your DSL connection. Can you show me them please?
