third party modem/router (gateway) compatible with Xfinity security

I am currently trying to find an internt filter such as Disney Circle or Router Limits, and neither are compatible with the XB6.  I am considering purchasing my own router/modem combo, but I also want to keep my home security active.  I went into our local Xfinity store and the guy made it sound really easy - just go buy it and hook it up and it will work, but after reading the forums regarding bridging, sidecars, and all kinds of other stuff that I know NOTHING about I am concerned it isn't as easy as he made it sound.  Can someone guide me?  Is it something I can do myself?

There isn’t one. You would need a Netgear router that’s preloaded with home security software and its only installed by a tech. If you switch modems call in and have a tech out for it. If you don’t have cameras it doesn’t take long
