Well I have my Debian laptop connected to router 2 by ethernet as you
describe for admin and testing, so ya I can view the router web interface
and ping the router of course also.

Neither the laptop, nor the wirelessless (tm) computer can access the
internet this way.

The problem is it can't get past the router it is connected to so...

Either using gateway of .1 or .2 made no difference at all.

No DNS, nothing. I tried, host unreachable.

Thanks for replying! This is driving me bonkers...router 2 will not
communicate with router 1 and I can't see why.
