In this support article:

https://support.zyxel.eu/hc/en-us/articles/360001482220-Setting-the-VMG-as-Modem-Bridge-Mode

...it says after setting the VMG as Modem Bridge Mode

"The VMG can still be accessed via it's management IP."

But it doesn't seem to work.

For example, if I want to use it VMG3925-B10 in Bridge Mode, and the primary router already has 192.168.1.1 as it's IP address, then Ineed to change the default IP address for VMG3925-B10 from 192.168.1.1 to something else.

I changed mine to 192.168.1.253, turned off DHCP, and firewall, turned on bridge mode, and connected from LAN1 to the WAN port on my primary router.

Now I cannot reach it's configuration management / GUI pages from any device on the primary LAN.

Pinging 192.168.1.253 results in "Destination host unreachable".

The only way I can get to it is connecting directly via it's Wifi (which I want to turn off, so it doesn't interfere with the main WiFi APs in the network).

What settings in the VMG3925-B10 do I need to configure to be able to be able to reach it through the primary LAN router?

    Can anybody confirm they can reach their device on the management IP through another router?

    Hello @k1s

    If you connect a standalone computer to LAN1 with a crossover cable and give the computer the IP address of 192.168.1.1 and subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 can you then ping 192.168.1.253 ?

    Kind regards,

    Tony
