Anyone have the Comcast Arris router... Can it be replaced?

My wireless signal is pretty weak and I thought about getting a new router but the Arris seems pretty proprietary to the Comcast cable system I have. Has anyone successfully swapped out their router for something they recommend?

Ps - I did just purchase the Almond wifi extender so I still need to see how that works out.

Try getting a regular wireless router and plugging it into the Arris (port 1), and then use the new wireless router as your access point. Comcast recently replaced my phone modem with an all-in-one thing, which includes a wireless router, and the signal & speed are terrible. I plugged the Netgear I used for the old phone modem into the new one and use that as the access point, and the signal & speed are what they should be.
