I know, this has been posted a gazillion times, but non of the postings I have read really helps me anyway..
Well, here goes:
I have two RV042 routers with the following settings:
LAN IP: 172.16.1.254 / 24
WAN IP: 10.1.0.1 / 24 GW: 10.1.0.2
LAN IP: 172.16.2.254 / 24
WAN IP: 10.1.0.2 / 24 GW: 10.1.0.1
The WAN connections are wired to a standard switch, meaning that both routers have a valid external IP in the 10.1.0.X segment
On each router I have one computer. Lets call them C1 and C2
C1 IP: 172.16.1.10 / 24 GW: 172.16.1.254
C2 IP: 172.16.2.12 / 24 GW: 172.16.2.254
The Computers can connect to the coresponding router for configuration and testing.
I have configured the VPN as a GW2GW using the documentation and hers how I have done it:
Tunnel no: 1
Tunnel Name: Åssiden
Local Group Setup:
Local Security Gateway Type: IP Only
IP Address: 10.1.0.1
Local Security Group Type: Subnet
IP Address: 172.16.1.0
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Remote Group Setup:
Remote Security Gateway Type: IP Only
IP Address: 22.214.171.124
Remote Security Group Type: Subnet
IP Address 172.16.2.0
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
On RouterB the exactly settings are entered on the oposite side, as described. Local Group <=> Remote Group etc...
The IP Sec Setup is like this on both sides:
Keying Mode: IKE with preshared key
Phase1 DH group: Group 1
Phase 1 Encryption: DES
Phase 1 Auth. MD5
Phase 1 SA Life time: 28800
Perfect forward sec: Yes
Phase 2 DH group: Grp 1.
Phase 2 Encryption: DES
Phase 2 Authentication_ MD5
Phase 2 SA Life time: 3600
Phrasedkey: SomeRandomKeyEntered Same on both sides
Now, when I in the VPN Summary page press Connect button I get this:
This tells me that the VPN is correct configured and up and running.
problem is that its impossible to ping from C1 to C2 and vs.
What more do I have to do? Do I nead to add something in the "Advanced Routing" in the SETUP pane ?
Please anyone... I really nead some assistance here...

Are C1/C2 getting their IP from the router or are they using static IP? Can you please verify the default gateway settings on both devices? Here are couple of useful links:
Hope this helps.
Yes, all computers inside the LAN on all sites gets theyr IP from the ROUTERS.
If I connect to one of the routers using PPTP I can reach everything on the inside. I wil study your links though..
are you trying to ping by name or IP address?
Your VPN settings look ok (except for one typo in the Remote Group setup). If you are connected, then that is just a typo in your post, not the config. I use the following Advanced Settings:
Dead Peer Detection
It's possible that you need NAT Traversal checked, but I wouldn't think so based on your description.
Have you created any custom firewall rules that could be blocking this? The firewall rules will pertain to the VPN connections if the "destination" value is a LAN IP.
