Connecting to Nighthawk R6700

I have AT&T Universe. When I set up the Nighthawk, I created a new Network & Password. When it directed to connect the Ethernet cable from the Nighthawk to the AT&T router, my newly created Network disappeared. Called AT&T, they said it’s connected. How can I confirm this is accurate? Thanks

   Is that accurate?  Hardware version (plain/[v1], "v2", "v3")?
Firmware version?

   "AT&T U-verse"?

   Does it have a maker and model number?

   Are you talking about a wireless network, or what?  As usual, showing
actual actions with their actual results (error messages, LED
indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague descriptions or
interpretations.

   When _what_, exactly, directed _what_, exactly?  What, exactly, is
connected to what, exactly?  When dealing with devices which have
multiple Ethernet ports, it's helpful to specify which port on each
device is connected to which port on the other device.

   What, exactly, does that mean?  What, exactly, "disappeared" from
where, exactly?

   Connect a computer to your (unspecified) "the AT&T router"?

   Why are you trying to connect an R6700[vX] to your (unspecified) "the
AT&T router"?  If you want to extend your wireless-network coverage,
then you may want to configure the R6700[vX] as a wireless access
point.  Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your model number, and
look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Look for "Use the Router
as a Wireless Access Point".
