I have two routers on my network:

Router A
WAN
IP: 10.151.1.51
GW: 10.151.1.7
Sub:255.255.255.0

LAN
IP: 10.151.1.1
sub: 255.255.255.0


Router B
WAN
IP: 10.151.1.52
GW: 10.151.1.7
Sub:255.255.255.0

LAN
IP: 10.151.4.1
sub: 255.255.255.0


How can I configure the routing table so I can ping a machine from Router A on Router B?

One SOlution Would be if you put them under same Subnet.

Change Router  2 IP TO
IP: 10.151.1.*

Then Connect Routers2 with Router 1 Port.

Then I dont think you could achieve it with Regular LinkSys Router.

The linksys has the ability to configure routing tables so I would imagine you could .  Im just not sure how to.

How do they connect to each other physically?  Are those your actual addresses or do you have typos in your RouterB config? Please review and correct as needed. Your WAN address should usually be different than the LAN address.

I need some help to help you...

First problem is that your WAN and LAN interfaces subnets on Router A overlap.

Do you have them in Gateway mode, or in Router mode?

You can
1) add a static route on Router A:
10.151.4.0 255.255.255.0 --> 10.151.1.52

2) enable RIPv2 on both routers

On router A are 2 identic subnets

So change configuration of router A (i soppose that the routers will be connected over the  WAN interface)
Router A
WAN
IP: 10.151.1.51
GW: 10.151.1.7
Sub:255.255.255.0

LAN
IP: 10.151.5.1
sub: 255.255.255.0


Router B
WAN
IP: 10.151.1.52
GW: 10.151.1.7
Sub:255.255.255.0

LAN
IP: 10.151.4.1
sub: 255.255.255.0

then go the the static routing TAB on router A and add route to 10.151.4.1 mask 255.255.255.0 gw 10.151.1.52 interface WAN
then go the the static routing TAB on router B and add route to 10.151.5.1 mask 255.255.255.0 gw 10.151.1.51 interface WAN

it seems you just like to practice subneting and routing, here is a workable schema

Router A
WAN
IP: 10.151.1.51
GW: 10.151.1.52 **
Sub:255.255.255.0

LAN
IP: 10.151.2.1 **
sub: 255.255.255.0


Router B
WAN
IP: 10.151.1.52
GW: 10.151.1.51 **
Sub:255.255.255.0

LAN
IP: 10.151.4.1
sub: 255.255.255.0

** the changed things.

hope it helps,
