Motorola NVG589 Cascade Router Functionality with Apple Time Capsule

I am an AT&T U-Verse subscriber. Recently I upgraded my internet to the fastest connection available through AT&T. The technician installed a Motorola Gateway NVG589 modem in our place.  I have an apple Time Capsule that I would like to use to control my entire network (bypassing the AT&T equipment).  Can someone walk me through the steps of enabling the "Cascade Router" functionality on the Motorola device.  I am getting all sorts of subnet mask issues that I do not necessarily understand.  I reached out to ATT Tech Support but they were not able to assist.

Hi cooper-stone,

 

If you are just looking to do basic browsing with the devices connected to the Apple Time Capsule, then you actually do not have to do anything special. Just have your Apple Time Capsule set to obtain an IP address from the NVG589, and it should work. If you are looking to add a device that may need special permissions, like a security camera, here is a helpful article from frostcall.

Hope this helps.
