New Nighthawk AX6 connecting to Century Link DSL

I get very close to connecting new Nighthawk AX6 device & App says "Checking Cables". I have logon ID & Password from my Century Link DSL account.  Need to know how to proceed. Any ideas?

I don't think netgear makes an AX dsl modem as far as I'm aware. They really haven't had much since AC for dsl. 

so if you're connecting an AX router, its to one of centurylink's gateways. 

So which router do you have from netgear? 

And which from Centurylink

It is possible that @BizjetMike is trying to connect this unnamed AX6 router to the Internet through a DSL modem.

 

In which case, we need to know not just the router model but also the make and model of the modem.
