Does anybody know why I had to disable my firewall in my wireless home security network in order to install my new AT&T wireless gateway?

northern1,

The normal reason given is that the gateway may try to assign an IP address automatically to your pc and if that address is not allowed by your firewall, you won't ever obtain a network address or be able to access the router's internal setup.

Felix
