My network and my neighbors network are connected (we share my server). We both have our own WAN-connection to the internet. Right now we use the following setup:
Neighbor: Internet --> router (192.168.1.1, DHCP off) --> network devices (pc’s with static IP’s using 192.168.1.1 as gateway)
My setup: Internet --> router (192.168.1.2, DHCP on) --> network devices (all automatically determined IP’s through DHCP)
The two networks are connected with a network cable between a switch at my house and a switch at my neighbor’s house.
In essence this all works fine. But if my neighbour doesn’t specify a static IP on his devices they receive an IP from my dhcp-server and they use my internet connection to go online.
So is there a way to have 2 DHCP servers enabled on my network. One for my neighbour to use and one for me? So that we both use our own internet connections but still remain connected to each other.
I’m guessing there must be a simple solution but I cannot seem to find one. Who has any ideas?
