Hub & Spoke & Spoke-to-Spoke Routing

I have a functional hub & spoke network with the corp office as the hub and 6 satellite offices as the spokes. The corp office can communicate with all 6 spokes and the spokes can all communicate with the corp office (hub).  I now need to make the spokes be able to communicate with each other and I am not sure exactly how to make it happen.  There are Linksys RV042 routers at all 7 locations (I know there are more qualified routers for this setup, but unfortunately this is all I have to work with.)  There are Server 2003 domain controllers at all 7 locations running AD with the PDC in the corp office.  All replication is functional between the spokes and the hub and vice versa.  All locations have their own DHCP server and DNS server. All locations access the internet locally with traffic between the hub & spokes are thru the VPNs on the RV042.

I am pretty sure this has to be done with static routing (and I may be going in the wrong direction) but I am not sure how to set it up.  The Linksys has the ability for static routing and I have played with it a little but have been unable to get it to work.

Any help that can be provided will be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

If you don't have VPN's connecting spoke to spoke, then all of your routing will have to go through the hub router.  You can put routes on the hub router pointing to the spokes. On the spokes you would just put routes destined for the spoke subnets with the hub being the next hop.

You may also want to use RIP and does this dynamically, but your vpns will need GRE.
