Nighthawk won't connect to lm1200

I am trying to set up my nighthawk AC1750 to connect to my LM1200. the LM1200 has a straight talk att sim card. I can get the LM1200 to work when connected to my laptop. When I removed the cable from the laptop and connect to the Nighthawk  the app is telling me I have no internet connection and I can not finish setting up my system. I am connected to the LM1200 LAN and the Nighthawk WAN. This connection gives me a red led on the Nighthawk. Connecting LM1200 WAN to Nighthawk WAN gives me no LED on the Nighthawk.

 

How do I troubleshoot?

Should I run the LM1200 as bridged or router mode?

Run LM1200 in the default Bridge mode is fine. The trick is that after you connect the LM1200 to your router, you need to reboot LM1200 so that LM1200 will get the new IP address from your carrier network and pass the IP to your router.

 

Please give it a try and let me know if you still see the issue.

Thanks
