I set up a modem as a range extender as in this thread. Initially I set it to WDS-only and could connect only via ethernet, so I wanted to login to the modem and change to Hybrid to also connect via wifi. With the default IP of the modem, I go instead to the router page.
Following these methods, I looked at the DHCP table on the router, which does not list the MAC address of the modem. I also tried pinging the broadcast address and then checking the result of
arp -a. It returned 5 IP addresses, none with the modem's MAC address. One
address timed out, all others gave an error
Safari can't open the page.
My machine is connected to the modem and has an IP address that does not show on the router's DHCP table, hence I believe the modem is doing Network Address Translation, as in How to access an adsl modem/router in bridged mode?.
I turned off the router, restarted the modem, got into the router's page, and changed the mode to "hybrid", so now I can connect via wifi. I also set the LAN IP of the modem to 192.168.2.1 to have a different range than the router and left the same netmask (255.255.255.0). I confirmed that I can access this page when the modem is not bridged.
When bridged, the page at 192.168.2.1 does not respond from my machine plugged in to the modem with an ethernet cable or on the modem's wifi.
How can I find the IP address of the bridged modem or access the modem's page when bridged?
