    I have 2 routers.

    I I am trying to make it so that i can ping 192.168.9.1 from Router A, and i assume i have to make a static route. I tried making one on the 192.168.1.1 but it doesnt work. Router B takes the IP 192.168.1.160 from A. But its not working This is what i setup below on Router A. Did i do something wrong?

    Provide a topology diagram, specifically how physically have Router A connected to Router B (which ports, etc.).

    So basically my Modem is plugged into the WAN of my 192.168.1.1

    And 192.168.1.1 is plugged into the WAN on 192.168.9.1 from its LAN.

    I want to be able to ping from the left laptop to the right.

    But pinging from the right laptop to the left already works for some odd reason.

    So i tried making a static route but its not working.

    You're on the right track with the static route, but you likely need to disable gateway mode on "Tomato 2" and possibly remove additional (default) security on "Tomato 2".

    You do realize you can tie (1 to 2) LAN ports together and make both Tomato routers play nice on the same LAN/WLAN network, right? In my experience that's substantially less complicated than setting Tomato up as a standalone router w/o security.

    How come im not able to access the tomato though from 192.168.1.1 side? When i type 192.168.9.1 in the address bar?

    Because you would need to turn on "Remote Administration" to make this work, since the packets coming from 192.168.1.1 are arriving on the WAN port of Tomato 2, not the LAN port. Or this may be a simple firewall rule you need to add on the Tomato 2 router -- I have no idea since I do not have familiarity with the Gateway Mode "disabled" configuration.

    Its been years since I've futzed with this, and it was on a Teddybear TomatoUSB build to boot, but as I recall I had to clear some of the iptables and set them to default to ACCEPT before it would work correctly. The reason I did this was to segment off a network from the rest of the company so they could talk amongst themselves at gigabit speeds without interacting with the company's crufty 10Mb network. Its still going today, actually. Zero security but its WAN sits behind a firewall, so pffft.

    You should be able to enable remote administration and access the administration site from 192.168.1.160 without resorting to that drastic step.
