No Wifi Network Broadcast

I have a RAX70 and recently installed a new Xfinity/Comcast router.  I setup the Xfinity router in bridge mode, and ever since then my RAX70 router will not broadcast my network name and will not allow Wifi connections to it.  My Firmware on the RAX70 is at the latest code level and it has internet through a ethernet connection to the Xfinity router.   Anyone else have this problem, any ideas how to get back my Nighthawk Wifi?

   As always, an actual version number would be more useful than your
opinion of what's "latest" today.

 

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual (at least).  Read.  Look for the
LED descriptions and "Troubleshoot".  Pay particular attention to the
"WiFi LED" and the (poorly identified?) "WiFi button".  Did you press
it?  Further reading might not hurt, either.

   What about wired connections?
