I have an existing ethernet home network with a number of XP PC's and a Netgear Dg834GT Broadband router. For a development project I have want to link another small network configured as different sub-net with a number of devices on it.
Main network : Subnet 192.168.1.x mask 255.255.255.0 ADSL Router with DHCP server enabled.
New Network : Subnet 192.168.0.x mask 255.255.255.0 Ehternet Router to Main network with DHCP Server
I believe I need another router (or possibly a gateway) to link the two ethernet networks. The problem is there many available routers on the market, most of which have are ADSL - Ethernet ports. I need Ethernet - Ethernet ports. I see there are some Routers available with say 4 10/100 ethernet ports and another WAN Ethernet port for connection to an ADSL or Cable Modem. Will this type of router work for me if I connect the WAN port to my existing network and use the other ethernet ports for my new network ?
If not can anyone recommend the type of router I need to look for, examples would be good ?
