You've got a no text error (So I'll guess at your question).

Just use a class C private network.

suitable ip addresses include:
192.168.1.1
and
192.168.1.2

 The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) has reserved the
  following three blocks of the IP address space for private networks:

                10.0.0.0        -   10.255.255.255
                172.16.0.0      -   172.31.255.255
                192.168.0.0     -   192.168.255.255

I tend to prefer the class C 192.168.x.x block. For example, I'll name my boxes 192.168.1.1 ... 192.168.1.2 etc.

Finally, I suggest you take a look at the IP Masquerade and the Home-Network-mini-HOWTO howtos.

I am refunding points and PAQing this item, due to the NO TEXT problem so that elmendor can post this again.  The problem should now be resolved.
