I have a motorola sbg1000 as my home router. This is my isp provided router. I have a couple of ports forwarded for remote desktop and a couple of applications. I'm setting up a test lab network for a number of different security tests. In my test network I have two pcs. I don think you need the specifics on the pc's, but I have that info if needed. One is running windows xp. The other is running windows 7 with vmware that has win2008r2 and ubuntu so far. My router is an asus WL520GU GC E3188. Both are hard wired. I want to have my test network seperate from my home network because of the types of testing I'll be doing, but I can't for the life of me figure out what I'm doing wrong. Right now the Asus is connected to the motorola(isp) router and the internet is running on both. However I've tried a number of different ways to try to seperate the Asus router into it's own network but failed. I'll try to offer any information that might be helpful. I'm just not sure what it would be. I have an intermediate skill set with computers but newbie to networking. Any help would be appreciated.

No I don't. have those settings. I do have two routers and one ISP. The second router is for an isolated test lab. I have an isolated virtual test lab to assist with IT learning. I want to have one for my home but have a dmz type of zone for my security test lab since I will be changing many different settings and infecting some of the systems with different attacks. I don't want my work to interfere with the home network, so I want to have it running on a different subnet.

I don't know if your current equipment with it's current firmware will do this but what I'd do is use VLANs. And then not route between them. They both should be able to get online but not get to each other.

 

 

ISP ------- modem/router ---------- router/switch capable of making vlans ------- vlan1 for home

                                                                            |

                                                                            |

                                                                 vlan2 for lab

What you are speaking of is what I've heard is a good set up cavedweller2. However, you're right my equipment does not support this.

Hmmm.....your motorola does it's DMZ via the MAC address. So you could put the MAC address of the Asus router in there, see if it works and keeps them separate. 

 

 

http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/SBG1000_User_Manual_E.pdf page 47 shows you how to do that. You might have to play with where to plug it in on both, should be any LAN port but not 100% on that.

Hmmm... I'll have to try that when I get home from work.  :thumbup2:  I'll  post results. Will that be equivalent to something like the attachment, which is basically the setup I have minus the 3rd router?

The diagram = yes. As long as you keep in mind that home routers are also switches. The router part is a chip with some software and the switch is the 4 ports normally present on the back.

 

The IP addresses = no but you already knew that =)

 

Good luck I hope the DMZ works. Let us know. If you get your hands on a Linksys router you could put DD-WRT firmware on it, and probably Tomato but I have no first hand experience with it. And mess with vlans....something very handy to know for network security =)
