    I have two routers

    192.168.45.1

    and

    192.168.75.1

    Its setup like this

    Internet
    I
    I
    192.168.45.1
    I
    I
    192.168.75.1

    I setup a static route on my 45.1 router but it only works when i set the 75.1 router to Router instead of Gateway, but at that point i cant access internet from 75.1 why is this?

    Uh. Hmm. That is odd. You should be able to access the internet in either mode.

    Can you access 192.168.45.1 from 192.168.75.1 clients when its in router mode? If you can, it may be related to NAT on 192.168.45.1 only performing transformations for the 45.x subnet.

    When you've got 75.1 in gateway mode it "masquerades" as a 45.x client, when in router mode 75.x packets hit 45.1 unmodified.
