I have an Arris TG1672G router/modem that I am trying to put into bridge mode so I can use my Asus router instead. On the arris router page I turned off the fire wall, disabled DHCP under LAN settings and turned on Bridged mode, then disabled the wifi. When I try to disable DHCP under WAN and click APPLY I get a pop up telling me I need a static IP. The page then refreshes with DHCP selected. I am not sure what to do from here, my Asus router says ISP DHCP server is the problem, won't connect to internet thru wifi or wired connection. I am able to reset the Arris modem and use it as router/modem combo just fine tho

I believe your problem is that the WAN setting is Wide Area Network, not Wireless Network.  This is the connection of your modem to your ISP.  Since you don't have a static IP from your ISP, DHCP has to be enabled for your connection to your ISP.
