    Excuse the elementary question.
    I changed my ATT router's default password for WiFi, and am wondering whether I was looking at my router's software, or was I at some ATT website?
    I guess the answer is true for any type router?
    Thanks.

    In a sense, both:

    AT&T's router can always be bridged to a different one that you own, which they have no access to or control over (at least supposedly or theoretically).

    Well, ABee, you ruined my night! :eek:
    Seriously though, thanks for the response.
    The primary answer is that I'm looking at my router software.
    But oh my, how did I miss that thread?
    Regards,

    That backdoor issue is different than what you are asking about. You did NOT change anything at ATT.
