How To Set Up U-verse Wireless Tv Receiver Purchased From Third Party?

I bought a U-verse wireless tv receiver off someone on craigslist. Was thinking that I would only have to do a simple set up but I guess I was wrong. I set up the wireless receiver and it says something like incorrect account set up. Do I need permission from AT&T to set up a wireless receiver or is that something I could fix myself? Thanks

You need to have a Uverse TV account and associated setup if you don't already have this. I replaced a plug in uverse secondary unit with a wireless one that they mailed to me and all I had to do was connect an antenna that came with it to my uverse router, plug the wireless in, turn it on and go through a menu that showed up on the TV.

I don't know what AT&T did to the wireless receiver before shipping it to me and my home was already connected to uverse (which required them to come out and fiddle with outside wiring, set up their router, DVR and all of that kind of stuff).

Be careful because I'm pretty sure that ATT probably owns the receiver and someone may have scammed you

Hope that I'm not the bearer of bad news.
