Using hub two bridging mode- no internet

Hi, just switched to plus.net and have a new nighthawk x6 router to use.
I note that hub two can be used in bridging mode so acts as modem only. Although I’m getting no internet at the router (despite plugged in cables between the two.
Not sure where I’m going wrong and can’t find anything about this scenario online
Thanks

Re: Using hub two bridging mode- no internet

@Martinag  Welcome to the Community forums.

Set the Hub 2 to bridge mode. You should get a pink light. Connect one of the Hub 2  LAN ports, not the WAN one, to the Netgear WAN input.

Set the Netgear to PPPoE protocol, leave the VLAN blank, enter your Plusnet account username in the form joebloggs@plusdsl.net and your account username.

Let us know how you get on.
