Let's configure eth1 of router as mask of
Let's configure eth2 of router as mask
Host1 IP is mask default gateway
Host2 IP is mask default gateway

Now on the router you may need to add two statements for default routes.
Ip route eth1
Ip route eth2

Now after doing this you need to do ping on Host 1 or on Host 2; it will go through.

Hope this helps.
