Issues connecting my XR500 to my Xfinity modem


Issues connecting my XR500 to my Xfinity modem

Hey everyone. I’m having issues connecting my XR500 to my main xfinity modem. I’ve watched videos and read articles. Everything says the “WiFi On/Off” and “WPS” are supposed to light up solid white but never does that. I did put the xfinity modem into bridge mode allowing it to only act as a modem and not a router, because it is a modem/router. Once I tested both ways, those lights never turn on and the 2.4GhZ or 5 GHZ lights never turn in either. The only ones that turn white are the “Power On” and the “Internet” lights. But nothing else, netgear connection doesn’t appear on WiFi either. Does anyone know how to fix this issue to successfully connect the XR500? Thank you!
