I am running a network on Windows Server 2003 with XP clients. I attached two routers to the network so to have wireless connections. Everything is working fine. What I need to know is what do I have to do in order to be able to ping the two routers as portrayed in the diagram attached to this question

Are you trying to extend your wireless access point range?

If so, then why are you going straight to the WAN from router B?  You should let A be the "Gateway" controlling traffic in/out of the network and B simply hangs off the same switch as C with a static route on B to A to funnel all of the traffic.

I want to be able to access both routers from my laptop remotely  so to convert my laptop in a kind of central monitoring/setup console.

Something doesn't make sense here.
Does each router have it's own internet connection?

Yes, each one is commencted t to the internet. Each router is about 100 yards away from each other. I want to be able to enter into the router themselves to do monitoring of usage remotely. Right now, I have to be in the range of the router to be able to do so. My idea would eliminate the travelling from one area to the other.

Set the subnet mask to 255.255.254.0

Oh wait..

It seems like a VPN between the routers...

You will need to do some NAT configurations..

follow this:
1 make sure A can ping B
2 make sure C can ping A
3 if ping ok then

now if you ping C to B it won't work because B doesn't see C subnet
4 you need to add static route in B to reach C
 route 192.168.2.0 255.255.255 10.2.128.0 1

test and let me know the result
Like szwy said above you need a static route in router B to reach the 192.168.1.0 network via a next hop of router A's address in the 10.2.128.0 subnet but you also need the reverse configured in router A if you want to reach anything on the 192.168.2.0 network. So also add a static route in router A to network 192.168.2.0 with a next hop of router B's address in the 10.2.128.0 subnet.
