Your system should work in theory....I'm not well up on Broadband in the US, but another (cable free solution) would be to purchase a wireless Modem / Router.

You would need to consult AT& T to find a suitable model, but this would allow any wireless enabled PC to or laptop to connect anywhere in the home without the need for running cables.

Each PC / Laptop must be wireless capable, but most modern laptops come with built in wireless now, and cards for PC's are dirt cheap.
