I am switching from Comcast to AT&T U-Verse adn I would prefer to keep my Apple Airport rather than what AT&T provides.  Will I need to set up the Airport again as if it is new, or do I just plug into the the Ethernet port?

    The AirPort might work if it was connected to a Comcast modem/router or gateway device in the past....and it won't hurt to try to connect the AirPort to a LAN <-> port on the Uverse gateway to see what happens.

     

    But, whenever you make a change in providers, or swap out the modem in charge of your Internet connection.....it is always a good idea to reset the AirPort back to default settings and then configure it again to work with the new modem/router.

    I think you are correct.  Better to reset and start over...
