Hi. Newbie here.
forgive me in advance for such an elementary question.................but here it goes
I have (2) very small LAN's in a small office building. Each LAN has a unique Subnet and must remain that way. How can i get them to route to each other when needed and keep the traffic separate at all other times? Yes i know that this is what a router does. But I'm not looking for a $500-$2500 high end cisco rack mount router. I'm looking for a simple $50-100 retail store device that can do this. It seems your typical home wi-fi router (like the one i have in my house) does not support this type of application. A standard layer 2 desktop switch won't work either. what am i doing wrong?
