AT&T Modem Router + Apple Airport Extreme = ?

Nobody from AT&T can seem to answer this so I turn to you knowledgeable folks!

In short, my Uverse internet and cable service is set to be installed on Saturday 6/22. The question that nobody from AT&T can't seem to answer is how I would set up my network with their hardware. I do a lot of intra-network activity including managing my Airport Extreme (router) via iOS devices, etc. I would like my Airport Extreme to be the ONLY router in the network which calls AT&T's in to question. I also have my own modem that I'd like to use which is apparently on the compatibility list.

So I guess my question is: Do I have to use AT&T's modem and/or router? If so, is it a single unit (router and modem in one)? If so, can I disable the router aspect of it and just use the modem side of it, allowing the Airport Extreme to do the DHCP routing?

This was great help, but it is only working temporarily for me.  Within 30-90 minutes of selecting my Apple Airport Extreme as the "the computer that will host applications through the firewall", unchecking and checking all the boxes as recommended, and allowing DMZ plus mode, the settings revert to  uverse_DVR_ETH_3c:36:xx:xx:xx:xx which is the Uverse DVR. 

 

Any ideas?  

 

Thank you.
