Set Up NETGEAR Router with ATT Fiber

I have the new NETGEAR Nighthawk Whole Home Mesh WiFi 6 System (MK62) - AX1800 Router with 1 Satellite Extender nad trying to set it up with my ATT Fiber BGW210-700. I have looked into other posts but I cannot seem to figure this out and how to make it work correctly. Any help will be appreciated.

Here’s a thread discussing this. Are you entering the router or satellite IP address?

Ah okay. I’m entering the MAC address of my Netgear router and not the satellites 

ATT called me to say to buy a different netgear 😀

I have been using it with my Comcast modem and I havenot had issues. All I did today was plug the Ethernet cable from Comcast modem to ATT modem

I was able to connect my netgear MR60 with ATT modem. I did a factory reset on netgear ( not sure what settings affected ) and still had the IP pass through on AT and disabled WiFi on the ATT modem . Thanks everyone for the help !

I have both the AT&T router and my Orbi mesh system setup.  I have AT&T router going into a gigabit switch that feeds every room in the house with at least one ethernet jack.  Downstairs I have my Orbi plugged it providing wi-fi to the front part of the house and a satellite connected upstairs via wi-fi providing the front upstairs with wi-fi.  I still have AT&T Wi-Fi on as a separate controlled network. Haven't had any issues in over 3 years running it this way.  I also have a switch in every room providing a hardwired connection whenever possible.  I pretty much only have mobile devices on wi-fi.

Also this YouTube instruction is the best for setting up a router with BGW210-700:
