I've recently set up a new Asus RT-AC68R router by bridging my Actiontec M1000 modem/router.

When I was using just the M1000 modem/router, I could log into the M1000 by typing it's ip address (192.168.0.1) into a browser window. I then had full access to the modem's gui and could see what my internet speed reaching the modem was. I'd like to be able to see this data again for troubleshooting purposes (to make sure I'm at least getting my subscribed speed to the modem) but I cannot find a way to see this in the new router's gui.

Furthermore, after setting up the Asus, when typing 192.168.0.1 into a browser window I receive a 'This website is not available' error.

It would seem there should be a place in the new router's gui where I could see this information and I just haven't found it? Or some way to access the M1000's gui again?

I'm a beginner at all this so I may be missing something simple. Also, as being a beginner, I basically turned off the M1000's wireless capabilities, selected 'transparent bridge' mode, and let the Asus set itself up, so the Asus is basically running in it's default modes. It's ip address is 192.168.1.1.

Thanks for any help.

A couple lines later you give the reason: "so the Asus is basically running in it's default modes. It's ip address is 192.168.1.1."

Or some way to access the M1000's gui again?
To access the router part again reset it to factory defaults. You may be able to access the modem part with 192.168.100.1.

The Asus's ip address is 192.168.1.1. When I type that address into the browser I get the Asus gui. I was under the impression that I should also be able to enter 192.168.0.1 (the Actiontec's ip address) to get to the Actiontec's gui to read the incoming internet speed and/or change parameters with the modem. This isn't the case though.

Using 192.168.100.1 didn't work. I suppose I could factory reset the modem but I don't want to have to do this every time I want to see if I'm getting my internet speed. But I guess it may be the only option.

Many modem/routers combos when put into bridge mode no longer have an accessible user interface.
