Configuring Netgear Nighthawk M1 as Modem for ASUS Router?


Occasional Visitor
I've looked high and low online and am surprised to have not found any thorough articles on how to accomplish the thread title.

The setup configuration I would like to set up uses the M1 as a modem connected to a current Merlin-compatible router running a VPN. Simple, in concept...

However, online posts and how-to articles are full of conflicting information and methods that don't seem to work for many.

Aside from setting up the router to run a VPN, what are the key configuration changes that need to be made to allow this setup to work?
