I'm configuring 2 routers both with internet access to the same network. In the network I have the 2 routers, 2 acccess points and some pc connected to an unmanaged switch. I want people that connects to ap to use router 1 so it's the only one with dhcp enabled (with ip while some specific devices needs to use router 2 (that has dhcp disabled and has ip so i configured them with static ip and gateway I have a problem and a weird thing that I don't understand why it happens and I'm not sure if it's because of my configuration. The weird thing is that if I try to ping one pc to another pc statically set (for example ping to the first one always tries to pass through the gateway of the router 1 that shouldn't know about and I don't understand why. then after the first one it reaches the machine. for example:

Pinging with 32 bytes of data:
Reply from Net destination unreachable
Reply from bytes=32 time=<1ms TTL=255
Reply from bytes=32 time=<1ms TTL=255
Reply from bytes=32 time=<1ms TTL=255

The problem is instead that sometimes for some second I can't ping anymore static pcs with 192.168.1.x ip. after a couple of seconds everything runs again. If I detach the 1st router it doesn't happen. I'm probably missing some big problem with this configuration but I don't understand what I'm missing

  • Please post the output of ipconfig /all for the PC you are trying to ping from. Do any of these PCs have multiple NICs? – Twisty Impersonator May 11 '18 at 21:15
