router communication

hooked up both my routers in bridge lan to wan mode. main router is connected to isp on 192.168.1.0/24 and the 2nd router is on 192.168.2.0/24.
From 2nd router I can ping my lan ip address, default gateway, main router default gateway, and pc on the lan. From main router I can only ping my lan and default gatway, I cant seem to ping the 192.168.2.0/24 at all.
I have configured both routers with static routing. Main router 192.168.2.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.2.1 and 2nd router to 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1. main router and 2nd router has static ip addresses and dhcp enabled. I configured the normal things like hostname, wireless settings ssid/wpa2, router password, etc. Everything else is in default configuration.
If I can ping to both networks on 2nd router and main router to its lan only, is it my firewall in windows 7 or I need to configure something else in main or 2nd router?

Re: router communication

Hi, mr_g. The static route configuration is incorrect, that's why devices from router 1 can't ping devices on router 2. You only have to configure a static route on router 1. Gateway IP must be the WAN IP obtain on router 2 from router 1.
