Modem >> 203.xx.yy.mm (public ip) >> 192.168.2.1 series LAN network

Printers anre connected in 1st network. Now I want to connect printers from 192.168.2.1 network to the first network.

Hi,

If there is network connectivity between the two subnets you should be able to connect them together. I dont see the reason in why you would to do this to be honest...

number of available options

1. put in a dual wan port router to connect the two internet connections to a single ip subnet lan.
2. put in a router between the two lan subnets
3. simply create one lan subnet and either do split scope dhcp or do static ips with static gateways. Use 1.1 for one gateway and 1.2 for the 2nd gateway
4. change the lan subnet to 192.168.2.0 with 255.255.254.0 for subnet mask which will give you a ip range of 190.168.2.0 - 190.168.3.255

Thank you guys.
@Wand3r3r
4th options seems good.
You mean the subnet mask of lan connection 192.168.2.0 which is 255.255.255.0 should be changed to 255.255.254.0
For a side note : Even the subnet mask of lan connection 192.168.1.0 has the subnet mask 255.255.255.0 in existing network
