I am having a DSL Modem ZTE 831 Series. To have Wireless Connectivity at home, I have connected Tenda WiFi Router W316R.
The address of DSL Modem is 192.168.1.1 The address of Wifi Router is 192.168.0.1
The physical connection settings are as below:
Modem has only one Lan port e.g before attaching WLAN router i was able to connect only one pc so after purchasing WLAN router, i connected that one Lan port of modem with WLAN router's internet port. So now traffic of modem directed to WiFi Router.
The Wifi Router has 4 Lan Ports and one internet port (connected with modem) and out of 4 remaining LAN ports, 1 of them i am using to connect a PC as i am not having WiFi adapter on that desktop PC.
Other devices are WiFi enabled like laptop and phones etc so i connect them wirelessly.
Now after clearing the scenario, i want to come to the original question that i am want to access DSL modem configuration through browser while being connected to Wifi Router.
I am able to access DSL modem configuration while internet is connected mean when DSL is UP, so I go to 192.168.1.1 through browser and can easily access mode configuration.
But as soon as Internet gets disconnected like when DSL goes down, I can not access modem configuration page.
I am wandering that why it is issue when DSL is down because I am connecting to device on my Local Area.
Can any expert me with that Please.
