Please help, I'm a newbie here and I have two routers for testing:

Linksys Router: router1
computer1

Linksys Router: router2
computer2

router1 set to 192.168.0.1
router2 set to 192.168.1.1

i have one ethernet connected directly to each router's uplink/internet port. One end on router1 and the other end on router2. Is there anything else i need to configure? please advise, greatly appreciated!

I'm just trying to get Computer1 to see Router2 and computer2. Seems that there is something that needs to be done but i don't know the next step. No this is not connected to the internet.

You are connecting two routers in series, so the NAT layer is blocking requests.

Once again, what is the purpose of the two routers?

Well, you only need one router for a firewall, a second router is just a complication. Since this is not connected to the Internet, I can't imagine what the firewall requirement is for.

This is pretty much for a test network. To get computer1 that is connected to router1 communicating to computer2 on router2. thats pretty much it.

I think you need to draw a picture. Are you trying to connect the two WAN ports of the routers together?

Computer1----Ethernet---Router1---- ethernet ---- Router2----ethernet-----Computer2

This is pretty much how the network is setup. I connected router1 port1 to router2 uplink port. Computer1 still can't ping computer2 or router2, do i need to disable the firewall? configuration settings?

What's the "uplink" port on the router? What are the specific make/model of these routers? I say again, what are you trying to accomplish?
