I am a bit confused with this set up but for the sake of things I will assume a few things.
As far as I understand (And you can correct me if you need) you got the following set up:

pldtmydsl on router 1 (Now I am assuming that the router is a DHCP as well)
Lets also assume that this network has the following set up
IP -
DNS - &
We will call the above set-up LAN 1

smartbro on router 2
and again assuming
IP -
DNS - &
We will call the above set-up LAN 2

To each of those set ups you got PC's attached receiving their IP address\Gateway, and DNS lookups from the routers.

The fastest solution I can think off is to implement a bridge between the 2 network segments that way a PC on 1 segment of the network can communicate with any other computer on the 2nd segment.

Hope that helps

No they do not share internet connection you have to think about it as 2 separate LAN's that can talk to each other via the bridge\switch.
If you want to set up games for a LAN party why don't you set up a game server on 1 of the networks.
All users (From both LAN 1 and LAN 2) will be able to connect to the game server as both LAN's will be communicating via the bridge\switch.

2 separate routers and 2 isp in one network

by chercomengr1 In reply to Bridge\Switch

yes, i believe it can. just turn off the DCHP of 2 routers and assign an internal static ip address of each pc client by putting Gateway and DNS address. Remember this 2 router has no load balancing. you need to find software for this for load balancing server to install to your server pc.

Why not Cisco router?

by sridhar_reddapani In reply to go buy a dual WAN router ...

yes, its easy if you can replace both routers with one cisco router. You can do load balancing as well. If you feel its not a good idea, the other solution is connect both existing routers with new router say R3(R1 to WAN and R2 to DMZ) then connect your client computers to R3's Lan network, but need to do many tweaks in routing them properly.

Cisco? you mean spend wads of $$ when you don't have to

by CG IT In reply to Why not Cisco router?

D-Link makes a decent consumer leveldual WAN router . For about $100.00 USD.

Cisco offerings are $750.00 and $1,500.00 USD respectively.

Not to mention that IOS isn't the easiest O/S to learn and that the templates and Ciscoworks program sometimes doesn't make the router do what you want it to

May or May not

Yes thats correct, Its depends upon your skills on cisco. If you know how to do things in cisco router you can play around with it than any other router provides. Thats why still cisco stands as number 1 for networking equipments....
