Hi all i need router to see subnets such as 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.2.1 can it be done?
Yes you can. If you are setting it up on older routers like Linksys WRTGL, then you can follw the guide posted on this thread
If it is on newer routers like Asus RT-N16, then you need to modify the commands a bit. This is because Asus RT-N16 uses vlan2 for WAN, while older routers use vlan1. Also the physical ports are numbered differently. Down below I have quoted the changes i did. I've not tried it. I did it so that those who know can verify it for errors.
If you are doing it to increase the availbale number of ips on the network, then you can use 192.168.0.1/255.255.0.0 subnet. This will give you thousands of ips.
i need one subnet working properly and other for testing but both needs to have internet connection
You could always just get a second router and connect its WAN port to the existing (working) LAN to create a test network. That way, no accidental configuration reset can mess up your network.
Is your time really worth so little that it is better to spend a bunch of it getting your configuration working vs simply spending $50 for a second router?
