Configuring Parallel Subnets... HELP!
Authored by: Echidna on Sep 21, '04 03:45:56PM
Upon further consideration, I suppose both routers in my second diagram would need their own IP address. So, it would really take three routers to get the job done as I have drawn it. More practically, could I do something a little less intuitive - have the internet go from the first router into a hub, and then the second router comes out of that hub, and then plugs directly back in. It would make a loop in the network, and look something like this:

router ->   hub  -> computers
       /          \
      |            |
       \          /
        <-router<-
So, I could essentially keep everything setup in the way I drew my first diagram, only I would throw a cable looping back from out of one of the LAN ports of the second router back into the subnet of the first router. Would this work?
