How to join 2 diff subnets w/out router?Locked
Hi! I’m new to routing and subnetting. I do, however, need to find a solution for our company’s requirements regarding the merging of two networks within the office. We are currently using 192.168.228.xxx in our LAN ( I would refer to as LAN A) but another office would like to share a single Win2003 server with us and it happened that their subnet is 192.168.229.xxx ( I would refer to this one as LAN B). Both uses 255.255.255.0 mask. LAN A connects to the internet using the DNS number:126.96.36.199 while LAN B accesses the Internet via DNS: 188.8.131.52. I would be setting up this Win2003 server as an Active Directory Primary Domain and would also use it as an anti-virus server for Norton CE 10. I wonder if this can be done without the need of a router. Or if a router is, indeed, necessary, would you point me out the requirements and steps to go about it. Thank you!
