I am new to ATT fiber and I got the internet 1000 plan. The technician installed a modem/router: ARRIS BGW210-700. Personally, I switched from Comcast and ARRIS is known as complete garbage over there. Can anyone recommend me a WAY better modem/router than this garbage?

You can use the pass through method (google that with the arris model name) and it works fine as it public faces your own router to the internet. One big drawback is that using this modem limits you to 8192 total sessions on your nat table. In a soho or extra large family this could cause an issue. Work arounds I found here and a more in depth explanation of the issue. https://geekzweb.com/2019/06/10/bypassing-arris-bgw210-700-pfsense-netgraph/
