Have two physically separate subnets...need to install router

Have two physically separate subnets, 192.168.0/24 and 192.168.1/24 on separate switches and need to establish a route between them.

What's the minumum router/switch that will easily accomplish this?

Re: Have two physically separate subnets...need to install route

Hi,

If these switches are on the same site then you do not need a router. many switches allow you to assign a secondary IP range. so you can actually configure a secondary IP address.

If they are 2 different location then you will need router at each site and a leased line to connect both routers.

Can you be precise about what the current setup is and what exactly you want to do then we may be able to help further. ...

Re: Have two physically separate subnets...need to install route

Assuming that you have no other requirements, any router with 2 ethernet interfaces should do the job. L3 switches will do it too but they would be more expensive than SOHO routers. For the least expensive solution, look at the 870 series:

Hi,

I think we don't have enough information to suggest a router, he may already have a L3 Switch or a different topology in place, I guess we need followings

1 the current setup, links, sites etc

2 the current hardware, swithes etc

3 future requirements

in this way you will make a better decision.

Re: Have two physically separate subnets...need to install route

The two networks are at the same site, a LAN with 2 servers and 35 workstations (192.168.0) on a layer 2 switch and a security network (192.168.1) with DVR's and cameras on another switch. Need to be able to access the security network with a Windows client from the LAN. Therefore need a very basic router with two ethernet ports to interconnect the two networks. They should have purchased a layer 3 switch instead of the layer 2 but hindsight is always 20/20.

Will an 870 series work for this?
