I would like to have two computers to be able to talk to each other, that are on different subnets.  As of right now, the one can't talk to the other.  What I want to do is to be able to play Minecraft, but as of right now, they don't see each other.  Would a VPN be a good solution for this?

You can bind two IP addresses to your NIC if you can do without DHCP. Turn off DHCP and go to Advanced TCP/IP Setting in IPv4. In there you can put a 192.168.0.0/16 address and the gateway address (Subnet Mask). Then add another address 10.0.0.0/24 and no gateway address (Subnet Mask). This way you can be on both networks at the same time.

 

The ip addresses are just examples, and yours may vary.

I am in the advanced tcp/ip settings.  for the first address, what do I put as the subnet mask?  and I did not see a spot for the /16/24 at the end.  the dialog box only had ip address and subnet mask.
