I have the following set-up:

  • Linksys WAG320N modem-router connected to the internet via RJ11
  • Gateway IP for WAG320N is, subnet mask is
  • Static IPv4 address for my EA6500 router is

This modem is connected to my EA6500 router:

  • Linksys EA6500 connected to WAG320N on port 1
  • Gateway IP for EA6500 is, subnet mask is
  • EA6500 is set to auto-config DHCP mode under internet settings

I can connect to all my devices when I am connected to the EA6500, including the ones connected to the modem (WAG320N). But I cannot connect to EA6500's GUI or any devices connected to it when I try accessing them via the WAG320N.

What am I doing wrong?
