For typical home stuff it's OK. It's a NAT gateway that supports WPA2.
Bill commented about their "public IPs" being kinda silly (1:1 NAT.)

You can also get into the box and change settings. I did that to hide
my SSID and change it from "2WIRE###" to something else.

But, because of work & reimbursements I do my internet through a cable
modem (so  I can bill that back to corporate on its own) and TV only
on U-Verse. I have it bundled with my wife's cellphone and I get the
savings there.
