Compatible 3rd party fibre modem/router?

Are there any 3rd party modem/routers I can use for Att fibre ? I'm really fed up with the ATT support hotline and equipment. If you have an issue, you don't even need to call them. But thats another story. 

 

Right now I have a BGW210 and ATT pushed a firmware update which broke the port forwarding function. The only solution so far is getting a new router, which comes with hours of re-configuring networks, server and software. I would like to get my own hardware, where I decide when and if the firmware gets updates. I'm so disappointed about the forced firmware updates, esp. if they break things like now.

There's plenty of routers out there and you are free to choose one, BUT you need to cascade them behind the att gateway.

Ya, I know, I'm going with an AirPort extreme.
