The AE doesn't support WPS due to it being a security risk. Join the network manually.

So even though I can use AUtility 5.6 to add wireless clients with WPS you're saying it doesn't work?
If not then does anyone know if the att uverse wireless receivers have the ability to join a network manually?

Not reliably, no. AirPort Utility 5.6 was the last version that supported WPS (I assumed you were using 6 which doesn't support WPS) and it doesn't always work. You shouldn't use it because it is fundementally insecure (search "reaver wps exploit" for more info).
As I am in the UK I can't tell you if they do have that ability but most devices do (maybe call AT&T, don't know what their customer service is like).

An AT&T Uverse wireless television receiver will connect with an AT&T Uverse wireless Access point. There is no way to make the wireless tv reciever join your home wifi network - it will only digitally handshake with the AT&T Uverse wireless access point (which you should have gotten with your Uverse wireless receiver).
The two devices - Uverse access point and Uverse wireless receiver are configured to talk only with eachother, not any other wifi device. And the Uverse access point needs to be plugged into the Gateway itself, not into an extended network router node.
I have Uverse, with wireless TV, and it works fine, but it is not an open wifi architecure at all.
