Based on your setup the Linksys router is connected to the ASUS through a LAN to LAN connection, and the WAN port is empty hence it won't detect the internet connection, but the internet should work fine. With the LAN to LAN connection, you won't be able to automatically update the firmware since the Linksys router is not connected to the cloud server. If you wish to make use of the Auto-update feature of the Linksys router, you would need to use the Linksys router as the primary router and make the ASUS router as the secondary router.
Meanwhile, we'd like to know what happened when you tried LAN to WAN. What issues did you encounter when you tried it? Was your WAN port able to grab an IP address from the primary router? What was the primary router? Also, we'd like to know what setup you're trying to achieve for us to better assist you.
