Hello, I have a computer that I require it to be able to talk to three other computers that cannot have their IP addresses changed. If you refer to the RED computers, they have a hard-coded IP address that cannot be changed. The BLUE computer can change its IP address.



I do have a switch I could use, as well as a USB to Ethernet adapter. What do you propose as the easiest solution?


Thank you!

Without knowing the complete network layout, the quickest way to access the Three different networks, would be to set the IP of the Blue computer to one of the Three individual Networks.



You will need to change the Blue IP for each Network.

you need a router with the capability to route between four networks which is not within the capabilities of home routers. A switch will not route the packets between ports. Not sure about current windows packages but the older ones had the ability to act as a router provided the hardware had multiple networking cards (one for each network)
