C6250 Bridge Mode: cannot find option to "Use other operating mode" in the GUI

I am using the subject C6250 Wi-Fi cable modem router to connect to my ISP. I have switched off the Wi-Fi function on the C6250 and connected a Google Nest Wi-Fi router to give me Wi-Fi coverage in the house. I understand that this gives me a Double Nat configuration, and have been advised to change this by putting the C6250 in bridge mode. I try following the instructions to put the C6250 into bridge mode (here) but when I navigate to Advanced tab > Advanced Setup > Wireless Settings I cannot find a "Use other operating mode" option. Can anyone help, and perhaps point out what I am doing wrong?

 

I appreciate the help (I'm a novice user), and thank you in advance for any help offered.

   Visit http://netgear.com/support , put in your (actual) model number,
and look for Documentation.  Get the User Manual.  Read.  Look for
"Cable the Modem Router to a Router and Use Bridge Mode".  (Further
reading might be helpful, too.)

 

> [...] I try following the instructions to put the C6250 into bridge
> mode (here) [...]

 

   I would not expect an "R6250 FAQs" document to be especially helpful
for a model "C6250".  (Especially for its modem-related features.)

Thank you!

 

Clearly, reading the correct documentation is always a good idea ...

 

I appreciate you taking the time to get me on the straight and narrow.

   Glad to help.  It's such a rare pleasure to find someone who even
_tried_ to find a document before asking.

 

   For future reference, there's a more appropriate forum for your
gizmo:

'Router mode' should be set to 'No' under Advanced Settings. This sets it in bridge mode. Dug into the documentation and created an account here to provide a straight answer
