Combining two networksLocked
Background – I am a college student in computer applications with ONE network design course completed. (Lots of programming) My company gives me no budget (must grovel for resources). And this is not my primary job. (I “lucked” into it becouse I cando more than just turn on a computer).
Situation – I have one network that gives 10+ computers access to the internet through a DSL modem. The modem and computers are connected to a 32 port 10b100 fast ethernet switch. They are using DHCP with the modem acting as the router (I believe). I have added a network printer and several computers to this network. I also have another network that comunicates to a private server through an earth station (satalite). It is also DHCP with an NT server in house. They use an 8 port hub to connect. There are two computers on this network that I want to give access to the internet and network printer on the first network. The question is what is the best route to do this.
Additional info – the first network we own everything. The switch has the uplink port and several regular ports available. The second network is a leased network. It also has several application dedicated computers and a in house live video training center on it. It also is supposed to have internet access but it is through a dial-up connection. (why spend money for a second ISP to step backwards?)
Hope this is enough info for a reasonable answer.
