I have 2 Routers separated by L2 Switches, both router interfaces are in the same subnet.
R1 e3/3 IP= 11.11.11.11/24
R2  3/3 IP= 11.11.11.22/24

I cannot ping from one router to another.

I checked all interface of sw1,sw2,sw3,sw4 and they are all UP including interface VLAN1 (the default)

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Your have four switches connected in a circle. What form of loop protection do you have on?
Is this a lab or a production network?
Try removing the e1/1 - e1/1 link cable (SW1 - SW3) and see what happens. Maybe after rebooting everything!

SW1 is the root Bridge

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.
