Change out my combo modem/router to a NetGear Modem only.

I have a Motorola BGW210-700.  I don't use the VoIP.  I want to replace my AT&T unit with my own modem from NetGear.  The reason for this approach..... I have not had much success in getting the Motorola BGW210-700 to act as a pass through for the NightHawk AX4.

Not sure what NetGear Modem to get, suggestions appreciated.

AT&T doesn't allow you to use your own modem. They are proprietary to their service. You can use an additional router connected to your Gateway, such as in bridge mode. But you still use their modem to begin with.
