D7800 Nighthawk X4S, setting up as a network extender

I have just upgraded to TalkTalk faster fibre and am now using their WiFi Hub as the router. I want to use my D7800 as a WiFi network extender which I understand can be done. I understand that to do this I have to set up a “bridge” as per https://kb.netgear.com/24105/What-is-bridge-mode-and-how-do-I-set-it-up-on-my-Nighthawk-router

 

I have tried  at least 10 times with no success , what am I doing wrong ? Thanks in advance

   So is the "Cable Modems & Routers" forum.  Perhaps a suggestion to a
moderator that a thread be moved would be more helpful than directing a
poor victim to some other inappropriate forum.  Or just ignore the
error.  People who follow one of these forums probably also follow the
others.  If there's anything these forums don't need, it's more
pointless clutter.  Speaking of pointless clutter, how is this stuff
useful?:
