Accessing ONT router WebUI in bridge mode

    I have an FTTH router/modem set in bridge mode, behind my Asus RT-AC68U. I want to access the modem WebUI through the Asus router, as I was doing with my previous DSL modem.

    I left the Wifi on the modem activated, and when using it I can telnet and access the UI on

    As a first step, I'm trying to access it with my computer over ethernet cable, but no luck. I started by manually setting as ip address to my computer wired adapter, but can't ping

    Then I telnet the modem (when connected in wifi), and set the ip address of the used modem ethernet port to, still no ping response in wired mode.

    I'm out of ideas, I will be grateful if anyone can help me with this.

    Here are some infos of my modem :

    ifconfig -a : https://pastebin.com/phtbpuV7
    ip a : https://pastebin.com/tEJVDLMn
    brctl show : https://pastebin.com/b0UDtvU4

    Thank you very much for you help !

    If you have your router set to the 192.168.1.x range, then when trying to access your modem the router is looking only on the local network since it is the router for that subnet. If you change your router's subnet to 192.168.2.x, then when you try to reach any 192.168.1.x address it will attempt to go to the Internet and hit your modem page.

    I have a similar set up for our modems, but their address is, so our local subnet doesn't overlap. Hope this helps!
