New Nighthawk AC2300 Smart Wifi Router, Model 7000P

I purchased the R7000P along with the C6220 router.  When ever I connect the C6220 router to the R7000P, I get a solid red/orange light with the message, no interenct connectivity. In addition to that, when I sat the C6220 next to the R7000P to ensure the CAT 6 line was not the issue; something between the two devices would not allow me to reconnect to the R7000P. Can someone please provide some insight? I am not tech savvy.

The C6220 is a modem/router. Are you using it as a router as well as modem? 

If so then the R7000P needs to be setup as an access point (AP) and not as a router. 

See the user manual to see how that is done. Not hard.

1. The R7000P, services my HUE SMART BRIDGE, CAMERA SYSTEM and (?) the C6220.  I have a 250' CAT6E line that runs from the R7000P to my MAN CAVE.  I was attempting to use the C6220 as another direct gateway to my SMART TV, Fire Stick and Mobile Device when ou there.  Hopefully this explains my issue a bit more.

   "services"?  I don't know what that means.  What, exactly, is
connected to what, exactly?  (Hint: If a device has multiple Ethernet
ports, then "connected to device" is not enough detail.)

   Swell.  _What_ on "the R7000P" gets connected to _what_ in your "my
MAN CAVE"?

> [...] I was attempting to use the C6220 as another direct gateway to

   Try to resist explanations like "direct gateway", and concentrate on
what's connected to what.  The non-psychics in your audience have no
idea where all this equipment is situated.  Where are all these gizmos,
and what, exactly, are you trying to do with them.

> [...] Hopefully this explains my issue a bit more.

   "More" and "better" are spelled differently for a reason.
