Newer router modem combo to replace NVG510

I’ve had this router modem combo for years. I thought I could upgrade to something else and my Internet would be faster. It is used mostly it is for a Wi-Fi only. I have dsl..basic internet plan 6 mbps.

As far as a new modem or gateway, no. As far as the mesh WiFi, I use Netgear's Orbi Mesh WiFi system. However, depending on the size of your home, that may be a slight overkill. AT&T does offer WiFi extenders but the reviews on them are mixed, mostly negative.

Dump the gateway if you can and purchase a separate modem and a mesh WiFi router. If you have to use AT&T's gateway, then depending on the model you may be able to disable the router portion of the gateway and connect a separate router. As far as compatible modems, someone else will have to answer that because it's been many a year since I've had DSL.
