NightHawk R7800 and Arris TG1682G
I recently changed ISP services and they gave me an Arris TG1682G router/modem. I would like to use my own router which is a Nighthawk R7800. What is the best way to hook these up? I think i have it correctly but want to confirm:
Turn Off Wireless
Turn Off Firewall and other Security Settings
Set NAT to Bridged router
Ethernet connects from Arris to NetGear Port 1
Ethernet Port goes from Internet Port to PC
Router mode, AP Mode, or Bridge Mode- What mode do i need to choose?
Anything else I'm missing? Thank you

It looks like your Arris configuration is correct. I logged into mine and just turned off the wireless and set it to bridge mode. Everything else in the modem took care of itself.
I hooked up a cable from the modem to my routers yellow WAN port. Updated the router to the latest firmware, did a reset using the button on the back pressed in for 10 seconds and changed the admin password while leaving all the other configuration items alone as the default configuration.
