Cisco Router Not Passing Traffic Between Networks

We have an old Cisco 1800 in a test lab.  
The two network interface are configured as follows:

FastEthernet 0/0
192.168.5.33

FastEthernet 0/1
192.168.6.33

Each interface is connected to an un-managed Netgear 5 port switch
Each Netgear switch also has a couple of PCs that are configured with an IP on the respective network (either 192.168.5.X or 192.168.6.X)
For some reason, we CANNOT pass traffic from a device on one switch to a device on the other switch through the Cisco router.
This was working in the past, but lab has not been used in several months.
Bottom-line, it is not routing traffic between and then beyond to the destination IP.
I can't provide the config because it is in an isolated environment.
However, when I do a show run, one of the lines says:
no ip routing
From the router via telnet, I CAN ping a device on either the 192.168.5.X or 192.168.6.X network
Also from either side, I can ping as far as interface 0/0 or interface 0/1 so it seems to know how to pass traffic that far
It just won't pass traffic beyond that to another device on the opposite side.
Any help would be appreciated.  I feel like we are just a couple of commands away from getting this router properly working.

Thanks!

The no ip routing command turns the router into like an end host. Good for lab scenarios. Maybe someone was using it for such a purpose.

Also make sure the pc's are configured with their respective default gateways.

This is perfect, thank you!  Will the WR final command ensure it persists through the next router reboot?
