[CenturyLink] Specific steps to set Westell 7500 as bridged

At the house I have CenturyLink Pure Broadband 10 Mbps and am trying to set my Westell 7500 (model A90-750022-07 VER: in bridged mode to my ASUS RT-N66U router. I've seen a few web sites with instructions for this device, but they all seem to be for a different model or firmware version and don't match up exactly. I can't seem to find what I need on the CenturyLink website either.

I attempt to follow the directions I have to put the Westell into bridged mode, but I can't seem to get an IP address assigned from the WAN. The DSL sync remains solid, but actual Internet access is not being made.

I can bridge the connection just fine using a Linksys X2000, but this device has issues with maintaining the DSL connection, so I'd like to get the Westell working if possible.

Can someone post some specific instructions for bridging the Westell given the most recent model and/or firmware versions?

Thanks for the help.
