I need help adding a router to my modem. I need a VPN-enabled router so I got an Asus router that supports Open VPN.
I have tried using bridge mode although I get no connection to my router when enabled. Why is this? What should the connection type be on the router and am I missing a configuration step? This page has all the WAN setups that Asus supports. [WAN] How to set up an Internet Connection? | Official Support | ASUS Global
I have also tried turning off bridge mode and can get full traffic and service from LAN 1, however, this does not help me as I need a public IP address for the VPN server.
Any help would be truly appreciated. I can also provide more details if need be.

What are the models of your modem and router?
If you have a separate TELUS ONT and a separate TELUS modem, simply throw their modem away and use your own ASUS router. See Modems explained | TELUS Support
If it is a TELUS all-in-one device (e.g. T3200M), enable bridge mode on it and connect its LAN1 to WAN on your ASUS router.
Make sure you set the bridge mode on TELUS device, not your ASUS router. Usually it is DHCP and nothing need be set on ASUS router. It could be Static IP and MAC bonded(very unlikey). Better to ask the Telus Techinical who installed everything.
