   None of that is a model number.  Look at the product label.

   Which is it, "bridge mode" or wireless "access point"?

   "can't" is not a useful problem description.  It does not say what
you did.  It does not say what happened when you did it.  As usual,
showing actual actions with their actual results (error messages, LED
indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague descriptions or
interpretations.

> [...] thu xfintiy gateway (arris).

   No actual model number there, either.

   If you configured the "nighthawk 1300" as something other than a
full-function router, then it should have been given a new LAN IP
address by the person who configured it, or by the (DHCP server in the)
main router.  If you didn't choose a static address for the thing, then
you might need to look for something like an "Attached Devices" (or
"DHCP Clients") report on the main router to find that address.

   Then specify that IP address in your web browser.

Re: nighthawk R8000 serial#4MR98378A1609

Yes sorry for the lack of information in regaurds to the sutuation I'm having, first off my service provider is thru xfintiy and the problem I'm having is I bridged my router Arris TG1882G and used the nighthawk wireless router as an access point. The problem is that I can't log into neither of the routers to see the status, when I look on the phone app to the router is says its dissconnected. Is there a way to log into either the nighthawk router or the arris thru xfinity? Or is there a better way to set up this configuration to get better performance?

   What, exactly, does "bridged my router" mean to you?  Is it
configured as a modem-only, with its router disabled?

> [...] and used the nighthawk wireless router as an access point. [...]

   Did you configure the R8000 as a wireless access point at ADVANCED >
Advanced Setup > Wireless AP, or what?

   If you disabled both routers' router functions, then you can expect
to have some problems, because you would then have no router.

   Which device would you like to use as a router?

When I say that I bridged my router I wanted to use the nighthawk router along with the router from xfinity but with better capabilities for streaming gaming ect, they both work but the nighthawk is being used as an access point, because the service provider only give the "Gateway modem router" and it's not very good at many things connected to it. I can get into the 10.0.0.1 login to the gateway but not the nighthawk

   That's not what "bridged" means to most people here.  As usual,
showing actual actions with their actual results (error messages, LED
indicators, ...) can be more helpful than vague descriptions or
interpretations.  Misused technical terms cause more trouble than simple
explanations of what you did.  What you think it all means is much less
useful.

   Still wondering.

   Which "things"?  What is the actual problem with it?

   For example, as a wireless access point...

   Still true.
