Trouble with Bridge Mode on NVG589 and ASUS AC66U
I have followed the instructions as suggested on https://forums.att.com/t5/Features-and-How-To/How-to-put-the-Motorola-NVG589-in-bridge-mode-or-as-close-as-you/m-p/3552057#M39255
as well as some of the alternative setups people have suggested in replies but I am unable to get any connection through my router.
When hardwired to the NVG589 my internet works fine but when I connect the NVG589 LAN port to the WAN port on my ASUS AC66U I do not getting any internet connection. Is there a possibility that the WAN port is faulty on the AC66U? I do not know if this is the issue or how to check it, but normally when I connect the NVG589 LAN port to a LAN port on the ASUS AC66U the ETHERNET light on the NVG589 lights up. When I connect it to the WAN port on the AC66U the ETHERNET port on the NVG589 does not light up. Not sure if this is the issue, but I have followed the instructions and am still unable to setup bridge mode and get internet through my router. Please assist and I thank any help in advance.

To make it easier on yourself, I would just use access point mode on your Asus. I would factory reset your NVG589 and then place your Asus into access point mode.
To put your Asus into access point mode, log into it's UI(which is 192.168.1.1 by default). After logging in, you should see "Operation Mode: Wireless Router" at the top of the page. Click on that and it should bring you to the mode select screen. From that screen choose access point. After that is saved. Unplug the gateway and Asus and then plug the gateway back in and then the Asus.
To access your Asus after putting it into this mode, you must type in the IP address that it receives from the gateway's LAN(such as 192.168.1.71).

Thanks. This is me next option but I don't want to lose out on the other capabilities of the Asus router but if I csnr get it to work I guess this is what I will revert too.
