The second computer-router is in LAN:

The connection between the two routers is in WAN-WAN and it's:

I'm not very confortable using GUI (I'm used to CLI but I don't have it here) but I've try to set up statics routes to the other network. My problem is that sometimes I can make pings to the other router WAN IP ( and sometimes I can't. Sometimes I can ping the other subnet and sometimes can't and in conclussion, I don't get a full comunication here. What could I be doing wrong?

  • I don't think the devices will do this. As they'll expect routing tables from the 'ISP' and neither of these is going to publish them for the other router. – djsmiley2k Mar 29 '17 at 12:08
  • You could plug them both in on the lan ports of a 3rd router, this'd likely work as you were expecting. However, the routers may still block/drop packets that are coming from private or even class C addresses on the WAN ports. It's quite normal to do so. – djsmiley2k Mar 29 '17 at 12:25
