Best Nighthawk router for AT&T DSL

I have AT&T DSL, and the NetGear AT&T modem/router combo keeps dropping wifi.  I just hung up with AT&T Technical support and they recommend getting a nighthawk wireless router, but they did not have a recommendation for a model. 

What model Nighthawk is recommended for AT&T DSL.

Model: AC2100|Nighthawk AC2100 Smart WiFi Router

Just about any router should work. I personally would suggest Netgear r7800. Seems to have less firmware issues then others.

   Plain-old AT&T DSL, not U-verse?

   Does "the NetGear AT&T modem/router combo" have a model number?  What
are the actual symptoms of "dropping wifi"?

   Do you want a modem+router, or only a router, or a separate modem and
router, or what?  Can your (unspecified) "the NetGear AT&T modem/router
combo" be configured as a modem-only?

   Perhaps, if you have a suitable DSL modem, too.

+1 for the R7800. Decent, solid firmware and Qualcomm-based router. It has the least issues out of most other models, like the R7000 and R8xxx series

Routing: NETGEAR R7800 - Voxel Firmware 1.0.2.87SF & Kamoj addon
Switching: 2x NETGEAR 8-ports (GS108v4) / 1x NETGEAR 16-ports (JGS516v2)
