RAX80 nighthawk genie says will not work with bridged router

Century Link came in and hooked up a dual band modem WiFi CZ3000 and turned off WiFi on both bands. Now cannot connect nighthawk app to my router because it says it can't find the wifi. I need to bridge the modem to the router, but the nighthawk app says it does not work in bridged format. Is there a way around this problem?

The minute you add wireless to a modem, you need something handling routing. 

so you either have a modem or a combo device. 

You potentially can put the CZ3000 in passthrough/modem only mode. I'd contact centurylink for the best way to set that up on their device. 

Current Setup: CM2000-> SXK30-> GS716v2-> RAXE500->

You can switch the router over to access point mode.

You loose out on some of the features of router mode but it keeps you out of a double nat.

Would like to keep the features if I can. Is there such a thing as dual band modem without a router that would work with Century link DSL. Could find nothing on Google?
