How do I set up the CR1000A router to interconnect with ASUS router providing house wifi?

Presently have Actiontec MI424WR router for Fios 100Mb connectivity configured in bridge mode with Asus RT-AX86U for home wifi coverage.  Using 192.168.1.x addressing on the Actiontec end and 10.0.0.x addressing on the Asus wifi/LAN side.   We're in the process of upgrading to Verizon Mix and Match 300Mb with new CR1000A router included and The Most Fios TV.   

Verizon rep indicated we need to use the CR1000A for the 300Mb connection and MOCA coax cable box(es) TV functionality so Ethernet connection from ONT to the router and can bridge to the Asus like am presently doing with the Actiontec.  Not sure though how to configure the CR1000A for this or if this is even the best way to interconnect the two?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

You are not using the right terminology here so I and others are very confused on what you are trying to achieve.

First of all, you don't need a CR1000A for 300/300. G1100 is sufficient for 300/300; in fact, G1100 is sufficient for 940/880. Only 2300/2300 and higher requires CR1000A.

You want to bridge the CR1000A into your Asus's LAN via an Ethernet uplink or a wireless link? The latter is impossible, but the former is feasible.

The 300Mbs upgrade came with the CR1000A router and it was a simple swap of that router with the existing Actiontec. Only change was using the Ethernet for the Internet versus coax. Thanks for your response.
