Need help with "Bridging" my all in one modem

Basically I got a 

NETGEAR Nighthawk Smart WiFi Router (R6700) from amazon and I currently have a 

Model Name
TG1682G
Vendor
ARRIS Group, Inc.
Revision
12.0
Firmware
TG1682_3.5p5s1_PROD_sey
 
Thats my xfinity gateway^^
 
 
 
So basically I tried to go on early and connect the ethernet port to the modem and then the WAN on my new router and i enabled bridging mode in 10.0.0.1 and I went into the netgear app and it said the cables were good but that there was no internet connected so after an hour of trying to put it in the ethernet cord then the wan and all that I gave up and had to have xfinity support unbridge it for me
 
 
any solutions?

You have to power cycle the 1682 after placing it in to bridge mode. Let it fully come back up, then power cycle the router.

so if it fails again how do i take it out of bridging mode because It destroyed my regular connections from my modem and I couldn't connect to anything so I had to talk to comcast
