can I use any modem/router combo with my AT&T internet?

I've heard that AT&T recommends you use their brand of modem/router and not another mfg like Netgear or Linksys. My AT&T modem/router combo is coughing up a hairball and I need to replace it. Wondering if I can easily use another mfg's product or do I have to use AT&T's.
