(XT8) router.asus.com unreachable when router is offline


New Around Here
When offline (modem has lost the internet connection) my asus router (xt8) is inaccessible via router.asus.com but still reachable via ip address ( When this happens the router's web server becomes unusable and I can't even access my modem (

When online:
ping router.asus.com => OK
ping => OK
ping (modem) => OK

When offline (unplug modem's dsl cable)
ping router.asus.com => KO
ping => OK
ping => KO

I switched from a google mesh to an asus mesh in order to have full control of my router and network even when I'm offline (third country location, internet is unstable), it really becomes a pain when trying to diagnose.

How could I solve this?

Thanks in advance.
