Learn more about AT&T U-verse or get support at http://www.att.com/esupport Welcome to the Wireless TV Receiver setup video. In this video, you'll learn how to install your Wireless Access Point, or W-A-P device, and your U-verse Wireless TV Receiver. In order to complete this setup, you will need to locate your Residential Gateway and the components that came in your TV Receiver kit. Before you begin, make sure you locate the supplied Ethernet cable, your U-verse remote control, a Wireless Access Point and power cord, and wireless receiver and power cord. You will also need a cable to connect the receiver to your TV, such as an HDMI, Component or other suitable cable. This cable is not provided in your kit, but may have come with your TV. If your TV was connected to other equipment by a previous provider, you can also use the existing cable. You may want to pause, go back to a previously viewed section of this video, or skip forward so you're able to follow along. Let's get started. First, plug one end of your Ethernet cable into one of the open Ethernet LAN ports on the back of the Gateway...now plug the other end of the cable into the single port on the back of the W-A-P. Next, connect the W-A-P to the provided power cord and plug the cord into a working electrical outlet. Once powered up, the Power L-E-D light on the front of the W-A-P should be green. Now let's move on to the receiver. You will need to make a video connection between the receiver and your TV by plugging one end of an HDMI, Component, or other cable into the respective port on the back of the receiver...and the other end of the cable into the respective port on the back of your TV. Remember, this cable is not provided with your kit, but may have been supplied when you purchased your TV. You can now power on your TV and select the appropriate TV input in the TV configuration. You may need to consult your TV manual for details. When you're ready, plug the provided power cord into the back of the receiver and the other end into a working electrical outlet. The receiver will power up automatically. You will now need to wait approximately one minute before onscreen instructions appear on your TV. These instructions will walk you through pairing the receiver to the W-A-P. Start this process by pressing the OK button on the receiver. On your TV screen, you will see a gray and white antenna as it searches for a wireless access point. Now you can go to the W-A-P and press the Wi-Fi Protected Setup button on the front of the unit. You should see a fast-blinking green L-E-D bar under the button. You can now go back to your TV and the receiver. Depending upon how quickly you return to your TV, you may see a green antenna on your TV once the pairing has been successful , or you may see the solid green Link LED light on the front of the receiver. Either indicator means a successful pairing. In order to ensure proper signal strength, at least three green L-E-D bars should be displayed on the front of the receiver. Please allow up to ten minutes for your receiver to boot up. Do not turn off your receiver during this time. Programming will automatically appear when the boot up process is complete. Congratulations, you have now paired your Wireless TV Receiver. If a red antenna appears instead of a green antenna, you will need to restart the receiver and repeat the connection process. You can also try to reposition your receiver closer to the wireless access point and repeat the process.
