I'm sorry, but this is a non-sequitur question that appears to have been generated for the express purpose of giving somewhere to post an AI comment.

AT&T requires that they use the Gateway that they provide you.  There is no list of compatibles for you to go buy.

When choosing a modem/router for AT&T internet service, consider these factors:

  1. Compatibility: Ensure it is compatible with AT&T internet service. Check their approved device list or contact customer support.

  2. Internet Speed: Choose a device that supports your subscribed speed tier, preferably with Wi-Fi 5 or Wi-Fi 6 for faster wireless speeds.

  3. Dual-Band or Tri-Band: Look for a modem/router that offers dual-band or tri-band functionality to support multiple devices and reduce network congestion.

  4. Wireless Range: Consider the size of your space and select a modem/router with ample wireless coverage, possibly with external antennas or beamforming technology.

  5. Security Features: Ensure it has strong security features like firewall protection, WPA2/WPA3 encryption, and guest network options.

  6. Ports and Connectivity: Check the number and type of ports available, including Ethernet and USB ports, to meet your wired connection needs.

  7. Brand and Reviews: Research reputable brands and read customer reviews to gauge reliability and user satisfaction.

Remember to follow AT&T's guidelines and recommendations for modem/router selection. Considering these factors will help you find a suitable modem/router for a seamless AT&T internet experience.
