 Subject:  Help connecting two local subnets

Hi guys, having a bit of trouble with this and can't figure out why.
Basically my setup is this: cable modem connects to a switch, that
switch connects to two separate routers, one serves 192.168.1.0/24
network and the other serves 192.168.2.0/24 network. The .1.0 router
connects a LAN interface to another switch to which all of its hosts
are connected. The .2.0 connects to a third switch on the LAN interface
to which the .2.0 hosts is connected, and I also just installed an OPT1
interface which is connected to the .1.0 switch.

Basically we have a number of devices (like network printers) on the
.1.0 network that the .2.0 guys need to be able to access. I configured
the OPT1 interface with 192.168.1.254/24, set up a static route on the
LAN interface with destination 192.168.1.0/24 and gateway
192.168.1.254. At this point it looks as though I should be able to
access the other network, but so far I can't ping anything over there.
The "Enable filtering bridge" is unchecked, so the firewall shouldn't
be blocking packets (and there's nothing in the firewall log about
this).

Any ideas on what I'm missing? In the system log I'm getting this when
I try to ping anything over there:

kernel: arpresolve: can't allocate llinfo for 192.168.1.254rt
kernel: arplookup 192.168.1.254 failed: host is not on local network
