Setting up ASUS AC88U Model to Use Telstra Smart Modem in Bridge Mode

Answered

Hi

I have spend days trying to figure this out, please can someone help.

Im putting my Telstra nbn Smart Modem (model DJA0230) into bridge mode so I can access internet via Asus AC88U modem router (for specific reasons). 

 

Getting the Telstra smart model into bridge modem is easy enough but then cant get the Asus to connect to the internet through bridged Telstra Modem

Ive connected Telstra LAN Port 1 to Asus WAN. Then setting up the Gateway and Device IPs seem to be the issue. Do these remain the same as what was on the Telstra modem before it was put into bridge mode or do they change? I also presume the DNS stays the same as well.

Any help much appreciated

thanks
