I want to use the 871w as an AP and the 831 as the router to replicate the Netgear setup.
Any particular reason why you're splitting the functionality between the 831 and the 871W? The 871W can
do everything on it's own.
I'm going to need some time to look at your configs. For now, do you have good connectivity wired into the 831?
The only whacko thing I see is this
I messed with ip verify awhile back, generally found it not that useful for WAN interfaces that get assigned
Also, did you intend to do double natting on the 871w towards the 831, because that's what this does
