I have same issue - My Router has static WAN IP. How can i access modem (WiMAX) page at 169.254.1.1? Can it be done using routing tables in the router (D-Link DIR-615)? –  Ujjwal Singh Aug 28 '12 at 12:30

I've solved it installing TomatoUSB firmware in Asus router and config it.

Just enter your modem's IP address. Your computer will find out it is outside your current subnetwork (given this is configured to 255.255.255.0) and thus will send your request to your internet gateway, the Asus router. This will route all internet traffic to your modem (which actually is also a router in your configuration).

If you cannot access your modem's config page, "internet access" (which it is) could be disabled for configuration page. Usually routers decide by network port whether a page request comes from within or without your network, but it could also check your IP address.
