Set up and use AT&T Wireless Internet

Learn how to use your wireless internet device. There's no phone jack, internet connection, or professional setup required.

  1. Turn your device on.
  2. Unplug your phone from the wall jack. Plug it into the back of the device.
  3. Place a test call from your connected home phone. Be sure to include the area code.
