Routing to a LAB subnet

I have 2 routers 1 DLink (router 1( I know BOOOOO)) and 1 linksys EA6500 (router 2)  I have the following set up:

 

Router 1

WAN interface DHCP from ISP

LAN Interface 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

 

Router 2

WAN Interface 192.168.1.2 255.255.255.0

LAN Interface 192.168.2.1 255.255.255.0

 

Connection is from a LAN port on router 1 to the WAN port on router 2

 

From a device on the LAB subnet (192.168.2.10) I can ping devices on 192.168.1.0 and reach the web

 

From 192.168.1.20 I can ping 192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.2, & 192.168.2.1, but I cannot ping 192.168.2.10

 

Any help as to why I can not ping devices on subnet 2 from subnet 1, but I can ping devices on subnet 1 from subnet 2?

In router2 disable NAT and all Firewall options.

 

In router1 create a Static Route for router2 LAN.

 

Example:

Static Route: Interface LAN, IP Subnet 192.168.2.0/24, Gateway 192.168.1.2
