Swapping A Netgear CG3000DCR For SMC/etc.?

I am one of many who is having issues with the Netgear CG3000DCR modem that seems to be the default router for Comcast Business.  I've just spent over an hour on the phone with Comcast Tech Support and they tell me they can't give me an SMC modem.  All they can do is request a modem change and take whatever modem they send out (i.e., another Netgear....).  I told them that would be a useless exercise in futility.

 

I am being told that the SMC router is being "phased out" and it "not available" in many Comcast service areas.  So, has anybody out there had any good experiences with any other router?  (i.e., not a Netgear and not an SMC?)  At this point I'm prepared to take anything that isn't a Netgear, but I haven't seen any option discussed other than the SMC.
