Can't find option to set C7000v2 to Bridge Mode

I followed the instructions in the article below on how to set my modem/router to Bridge Mode. I am not seeing anything related to Bridge Mode in the Advanced Settings. Does anyone know why or where I should go to turn on Bridge Mode?

   What, exactly, does "Bridge Mode" mean to you?  Why do you want to do
that?  Is there some actual problem which you are trying to solve?

 

   "Bridge" is a widely misused/misunderstood term.

 

   Typically, in a modem+router, "bridge mode" means disabling the
router section, leaving only the modem section working.  Is that what
you want?

   Someone who has taken the first obvious step in solving such problems
might.  (Depending, of course, on what "Bridge Mode" means to you.)

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and look
for Documentation.  Get the User Manual (at least).  Read.  Look for
"Connect Your Modem Router to a Router After Installation and
Activation".

   Look at "This article applies to:" in that KB article.  Does it
mention your modem+router?
