The other day, I was enjoying some Call of Duty: World War 2 online, with my trusty AT&T modem carrying my virtual bullets to unfortunate victims. I guess that game’s alternate title is Call of Duty 50 or something.

Me and my Ally friends made it to the enemy bunker only to see that it was full of black women in Waffen uniforms. This is very much historically inaccurate, I thought to myself, so there must be a problem with my connection and the characters haven’t loaded yet. But how? The Netgear router I have might as well be a bunker of its own considering how sturdy it is.

Still, I went to check the wiring and what not, and lo and behold, there was nothing wrong with my Netgear DSL Gateway Model 7550. Of course, by the time I came back, the enemy players already had their way with my corpse, but it was worth it for a lesson never to doubt my modem again.

That’s not to say you couldn’t be experiencing issues with the same model of router, or a similar version provided by AT&T. While they don’t often malfunction, like any modem, setting them up can be a bit tricky, especially without the Netgear Model 7550 manual.

Where can I download the AT&T Netgear 7550 Wi-Fi DSL User Manual in PDF?

In our experience, the most common problems involving the Netgear 7550 come from trying to connect too many devices to it. Yes, the router allows it, but too much is still too much and will often result in connection issues. Our Netgear Model 7550 user manual explains how to better synchronize your devices with the router, troubleshoot it, and generally navigate through its user interface. Get it here, but try not to read it while playing a fast-paced shooter:
