Setting up IP Passthrough for Asus Router RT-AX55

I'm attempting to set up a new router (Asus RT-AX55) to replace the crappy one that AT&T provides.  I see that I need to setup an IP Passthrough and have found the instructions online, however when I go to 192.168.1.254 I'm not getting the same looking "screen" that the instructions show.  So, the issue is that i can't find the option to change the Allocation Mode.  I've searched under the "Firewall" tab and there's no Allocation Mode settings option.   I'm desperate to get this set up ASAP.  Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Lisa

Which AT&T gateway do you have, maybe the Pace 5268ac?  IP Passthrough is only for the BGW series of gateways and the Pace uses DMZ Plus mode instead.

Here is a link to how to set that up, scroll down to the bottom.

Okay, so i chose my primary laptop as the Application Host.  Is that correct?  Will i now be able to set up my Asus router?  Sorry for the stupid questions.

Not stupid questions, probably just stupid directions.  You should be putting the address of your router in that field even though it says computer.
