How do I set the CR1000A router to bridge mode?

I have all of my own network equipment and recently upgraded to 1 gig Fios. With the upgrade I received a new ONT as well as the latest router.  I would like to use my router and set the CR1000A to bridge mode. 

Does anyone know the exact steps I need to take or is there information somewhere to show how to do this?

Do you have Fios TV service?  If not, you don't need the Verizon router.  Just plug your router into the ONT and call it a day.

I do not have TV service. Just internet. This solution is the route I may just take. If I have issues with internet, I can just plug their router back in and they can troubleshoot to that point.

Thanks for your help

Also - and if they do not tech support from Verizon, OP should use their own NAT router.

Support will end at the ONT in that case.

That seems to be the proper way. If I need tech support, I can always put their router back online and let them troubleshoot it from that point.
