Help getting a setup with ISP modem/router combo and my own Wifi router

So I recently bought my own netgear wifi router. 

I want to basically setup my network so that the ISP provided all-in-one garbage is just working as a modem and not a router at all. 

If I understand correctly, that means setting the router in "bridged" mode and hooking up my new Netgear router via ethernet to the first port of the new bridged modem? 

Just trying to get this right. I hate the wifi on the arris router.

You understand correctly.  You'll continue to be charged the TWC monthly modem rental fee, but no surcharge for WiFi service. 

In this configuration TWC will not have read or write access to your router's settings.

Let's hope you bought a router with Gigabit WAN and LAN ports, 802.11AC wireless, and multiple external antennas.
