comment Two Routers, Two Independent Networks?
This question can't be answered without information about what kind of router you are using. (Well, it can be answered, and the answer is "sure, if your router does that".)

comment How to add a custom search engine to Firefox?
@DanH, yes, but the chrome functionality is frustratingly lacking compared to the firefox ability. For example, it only works with search engines that have the search terms in the URL, and you have no control over which searches get added.

Extra +1 if you can explain what is happening and why your solution works.

Extra +1 if you provide an example of each (I know you are teaching him how to fish, but you could give him the pieces of the puzzle to put together, and explain how/why they work).

You could always explain your answer so that you are both teaching him how to fish in addition to providing one this time around...

comment Is there a way to set the IP address of the VM in the hypervisor?
What are you actually trying to accomplish? As one poster answered, restricting the IP address range is one way to do it (which you can do if you control your DHCP server or with VMware workstation [or player if you get the Network Editor up and running]). Depending on your goals, you might be able to use the built in NAT functionality in VMware. If you are willing to do some pre-configuration, you can also use VMware Tools installed in the guest to then control the IP from the outside. Xen paravirtual VMs also have the ability to set the IP from the hypervisor.
