Windows 7: Cannot access modem management page through router

Cannot access modem management page through router


I recently upgraded my network with the following

TD-8616 - Welcome to TP-LINK
TL-WDR4300 - Welcome to TP-LINK
TL-SG1008D - Welcome to TP-LINK

This is a very good solution of 150 euros total cost and very reliable

Anyways, everything works fine BUT i have a "small" problem with the modem! Using the default settings

router ip:
modem ip:

ethernet adapter settings
Connection-specific DNS Suffix:
Description: Realtek RTL8168B/8111B Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)
Physical Address: ‎00-24-8C-63-35-92
DHCP Enabled: Yes
IPv4 Address:
IPv4 Subnet Mask:
Lease Obtained: Τετάρτη, 29 Αυγούστου 2012 01:10:40
Lease Expires: Παρασκευή, 31 Αυγούστου 2012 01:10:40
IPv4 Default Gateway:
IPv4 DHCP Server:
IPv4 DNS Server:
IPv4 WINS Server:
NetBIOS over Tcpip Enabled: Yes
Link-local IPv6 Address: fe80::64a8:4c00:6f96:575%30
IPv6 Default Gateway:
IPv6 DNS Server:
Assuming I wanted to use only the modem connected directly to my pc, and according to the manual (page 13/67), I should manually set my ethernet to use in order to access the web based configuration page of the modem. Ok, this worked.
But when i use both modem and router, i try to access, i get no response.

I have tried changing my router's ip address from to (assuming that the modem will see the router as client pc) but with no luck.

Any ideas?

After receiving support from TP link, it cannot be done. The pc must be connected directly to the modem in order to gain access to it's management page.
