How do I connect a SCS-2U01 Network Extender with an Actiontec PK5001A Modem?

I have been online with support and they say it is activated with my account correctly. I have three blue lights, but my SYSTEM light is still blinking red (three days). I cannot find any information on setting up my Centurylink Actiontec modem/router with the extender. Could someone please post a link if there is one available? Any other ideas as to why it will not talk to my Verizon network would be GREATLY appreciated. Also when I sign in to my account on verizon wireless, my phone is listed but the network extender is not. Shouldn't it be listed so I can set up which phone numbers can access it (when it does work)?

THANKS IN ADVANCE

Put the Network Extender’s MAC Address and IP Address in the Actiontec’s DHCP Reservation, and put the Network Extender’s IP Address in the Actiontec’s DMZ (DeMilitarized Zone). This will keep the IP from changing and allow the Network Extender to bypass the Actiontec’s firewall. 

This information is in the user manual, it is in the Advanced section here under the headings: DHCP Reservation and DMZ. Centurylink pays people to guide you through connecting devices to their equipment. Call their technical support line if you need help.

If this works you need to make a record of it because it will have to be done whenever you reset the Actiontec.
