Is it possible to route 2 Lans together just using one router with 2 Lan interfaces..  I have a Cisco 2600 Router, LAN A is setup as 192.168.1.x  LAN B is setup as 192.168.0.x.  From network A i am able to ping the LAN A interface on the routers, as well as the LAN B interface on the router, but am not able to get to any computers, or devices on the LAN B network.  Any suggestions would be much appreciated.  Below is a copy of the config.

ip subnet-zero
!
!
!
!
interface FastEthernet0/0
 ip address 192.168.0.254 255.255.255.0
 no ip directed-broadcast
!
interface Serial0/0
 no ip address
 no ip directed-broadcast
 no ip mroute-cache
 shutdown

interface FastEthernet0/1
 ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0
 no ip directed-broadcast

In TCP IP in both A and B
provide default gateway That should be 192.168.1.1 in your case

and prefered dns 127.0.0.1

Try it

Also check whether firewalls are not blocking access

1. windows firewall
and

2.  any other firewalls ( norton) etc

Yes, you are definitely able to what you are asking.

The problem lies with the default gateway on the device you are trying to ping.  Is the router's interface the default gateway for all devices on each network?  That is essential for communication between devices on the different networks.  I suspect that the devices on one of the networks is using a different default g/w (to get to the internet?)

Alternately, you can add an IP route in the OS to point packets bound for the other network to a different IP then the default gateway.

In windows:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    > route ADD 157.0.0.0 MASK 255.0.0.0  157.55.80.1 METRIC 3 IF 2
             destination^      ^mask      ^gateway     metric^    ^
                                                         Interface^
      If IF is not given, it tries to find the best interface for a given
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

example (in your case):

route add 192.168.0.0 mask 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.254

That was the problem, I talked to the other Admin at the Other Office and he had a default route that he was not telling me about at all.  So that was the problem, i didn't even think about it.  Thanks all for the quick responses and info.

All you need to do is to configure each machine on network A with default gateway 192.168.0.254.
On network B default gateway should be 192.168.1.1.

Then add the ip routes.

ip route 192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.254
ip route 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 192.168.1.1

That about it, router will do the rest.
